"Connected to a spur of the Stobcross Railway, the crane's primary purpose was to lift massive boilers and engines onto new ships; at the time Glasgow was one of the leading shipbuilding cities in the world. With the decline of the shipbuilding industry, the crane survived with a secondary use, loading heavy machinery – mainly Springburn's then renowned locomotives – for export. With the downturn in seafaring trade, use of the crane continued to decline and it fell completely into disuse in the early 1990s."
