Info about the build
I created the Grande Prairie Alberta Canfor Logyard Crane as a tribute to
the original Crane from my city.
The original crane was torn down Around Apr 20, 2012.
This Crain was created on Xbox 360 and brought it to PC.

I tried to keep it looking the same.  Anyways.  Enjoy.


History about the crane
Built in 1985, the giant crane at the Grande Prairie Sawmill has been a prominent feature of the Grande Prairie skyline for decades. When built 27 years ago, the crane has given a 20-year service live expectancy. In order to keep the crane operational, significant investments in structural and electrical improvements would be required. Given the mill’s move to cut to length log sizes and the improved efficiencies with ground-based equipment moving smaller log sizes, the decision was made to invest in log yard improvements and retire the crane. A significant safety hazard without the identified upgrades, the crane, unfortunately, must be dismantled. Canfor and the Grande Prairie community are marking the end of an era at our mill site with the loss of this prominent landmark.
