A grey two-piece 00-gauge model railway Trix Twin Railway (TTR) Breakdown Crane Truck Set, catalogue no.615.

The set is distinctive in that the crane's long arm isn't supported by a single long truck, but on a pair of shorter trucks, with one truck holding the crane's swivel-mount base, and the other holding the crane armrest and a toolbox.
