Big Wolf was one of two cranes that were on rails in the dry dock. Removed when the dock was re-furbished in the late 90's, the cranes themselves were sold to China (or so I was told). Little wolf's gantry had been long gone, but Big Wolf's had been a feature of the Nigg skyline for the past 10 years or so.
