Moving crews from Mammoet arrived on Monday to begin setting up equipment and installing temporary track in front of No. 576. The locomotive will be pulled from the shed and then lifted using jacks and gantries. It will then be loaded onto a multi-axle, self-propelled trailer built specifically for heavy hauls. The public is welcome to come watch the loading but must watch from behind the safety fencing.
For those unable to attend the historic move on Sunday, Trains Magazine will be livestreaming the event on their Facebook page. Continue to check our Facebook and social media pages as well for more updates, photos, and videos. Links are below.
