What's a "mobile" crane?

Presumably wheeled cranes with independent movement are included. What about rail-mounted cranes, e.g. many port cranes, where the crane can "move under its own power", but is constrained by the rails. I'm assuming that (per usual practice), these are not regarded as mobile in this sense.

Note that this will be significant to some rail-mounted straddle carriers and industrial cranes, which are thus excluded from here. Andy Dingley (talk) 21:57, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
