Sheepscot Passenger Shelter Move

(1/2) > >>

Kevin Madore:

I was fortunate to be able to travel to the museum last Tuesday to observe and photograph the movement by rail of the Sheepscot Passenger Shelter to the station area at Top of the Mountain.  While it would have been nice to have sunshine, it was probably more dramatic to have clouds and some snow showers.   When it wasn't snowing too hard, I was able to fly the drone and get some different views of the switching operations up at Top of the Mountain.   

The folks who planned and executed this move did a fabulous job.   Although the load looked pretty precariously perched on that narrow gauge flat car, the move went pretty much without incident and took just under 3 hours from start to finish.  I've assembled a Flickr Album depicting the move, so that the folks who could not be there can see what it looked like.

Bob Holmes:
Kevin, those photos are FABULOUS!

Mike Fox:
I should have invited you when we moved the first set of trusses to Alna Center. 13 feet tall above the flat car, making it 16 feet tall over the rail.

Wayne Laepple:
Very nice, Kevin. I especially enjoyed the mix of ground and drone views.

Bill Baskerville:

Your usual great job of capturing railroading at it's finest.  Thanks from all the 'away crowd".
