Last but not least, after finding this awesome score of cars, I stumbled upon an HO model train scale industrial crane, with working knobs to lift the load and move the crane from side to side. The base of the crane is also on flanged wheels to run along tracks:

The crane was $5. After finding that I called it quits for the day, figuring my luck was going to run out anyway. Questions, comments, requests for more closeups of a particular model, feel free to reply!

EDITED to add: I forgot one car in the lot of 48. Last but not least: the Matchbox Lincoln Town Car!
