A water crane or standpipe is a device used for delivering a large volume of water into the tank or tender of a steam locomotive. The device is sometimes also called a water column in the United States. Generally, water cranes consist of an upright steel pipe about 8 to 12 inches (0.20 to 0.30 m) in diameter with a horizontal, pivoting pipe connected to its upper end so as to form a swinging arm.
