Hot Metal Car Rolls Again!

On March 30 Ken Izzo, myself, Frank Stingone and others were at Station Square to move the hot metal car out from under the bridge to the other end of the track. It took several hours of cranking on a chain hoist but we were successful. We did break the handle on one chain hoist, fortunately I brought an extra "just in case".

The rail that the car was previously sitting on will next be pulled up, transported to Youngstown and relaid. That will leave the car sitting on a very short 30 foot piece of track until the car is moved, at which time those last two rails will also be moved to Youngstown. My thanks to everyone who helped. It is appreciated.
