Crane on Salmon wagon at Battlefield

There is a wagon mounted crane at the Battlefield Railway (link: http://www.ws.rhrp.org.uk/ws/WagonInfo.asp?Ref=8688). Does anyone know the identity of either the wagon or the crane? Thanks

I don't think it is one of the crane wagons included within the scope of this website (66300 and the two 66400s.)

Or 66501.

It will fall into the same sort of classification as our BORAIL B946060. https://www.nymr-pway.co.uk/wagons/other-rail-wagons/

I was told interesting but outside the scope of this site.

Similary when I submitted a photo of a train made up of 5 Salmons with a total of 7 jibs delivering 300ft lengths of rail to a worksite.

It seems there are a number of these sort of wagons around performing work on worksites on Network and Heritage lines.
