Click on each pciture for a closer look!
Well before sunrise on Tuesday, December 22nd, the Pyke Crane arrived on its float at Roundhouse Park. The float was positioned adjacent to the track just to the east of the coaling tower. Two I Beams were again to used to move the crane from the bed of the float to the track beside it. In the last photo at the lower right, we find the crane almost ready to be moved into the Roundhouse for the winter.
