Not sure how they are going to get it to Cheyenne. If I find out will post.
Or maybe someone else knows.
Argh. Left wanting to see more of what happened!
According to Trains Online News Wire, 4014 will be inspected from underneath now that it is on the panel track and accessible. After that inspection, 4014 will be moved about 5000 feet onto the Metrolink mainline via a temporary panel track connection, and to a temporary holding area at Basset. It then will be moved to West Colton Yard for final preparation prior to the move via Cajon Pass to the UP Steam Shop at Cheyenne. No schedule was given for any of these moves.
Hank....I may have to Grow Old, but I Never have to Grow UP!!!
So this is about a mile from any active track?
Any word on what they will use to haul this behemoth back and forth with? Obviously it's won't be under it's own power.
They did a news video on local KABC ch7 on the 6:00 news, very cool watching them pulling it out from its sleeping place.
