What is the difference between a top-running bridge crane and an under-running bridge crane?

A top-running bridge crane involves the running of the bridge over the tops of the beams of the runway. This configuration is preferred when the loads to be moved are heavy, as the beams also share the load as it moves. It is also helpful when headroom in the work area is an important consideration: the hoist hangs higher, above the head. An under-running bridge crane, on the other hand, involves the running of the bridge below the beams of the runway.
