Multi-year project relocates historic railroad turntable, 75 tons and 100 feet long.


Turntable removed from pit

In 1998 I finished leading a multi-year volunteer project to remove and relocate a historic railroad turntable that weighed over 75 tons and was 100 feet long!

I greatly enjoy challenges of moving large objects and figuring out how to manage complicated projects, sometimes in rather unorthodox ways.

I’ll add some details on this project when I can.
