That would be great to see! Photo taken on Wednesday...think it might make it to Groveton by Friday (tomorrow)? Are there any other message boards that might give a heads up on this? Thanks

Car number is QTTX 130602, no current location confirmed, although best guess is a possible drop in Danville today, possibly on the next 393 (tonight?).

I don't think there's any place near the center of town to off load the transformer except at Hazen's. Going all the way to the center of town would require brush cutting and track rehab.

Shouldn't have to CSRR went right to the diamond on the B&M side last year didn't they.

Considered this myself several ways. Downtown is likely out, I don't think that track is anywhere near heavy enough to support that kind of load, and the dirt pulloff area where CSRX stopped past the diamond isn't really big enough to stage the equipment needed to get that thing over the road. Not to mention steep grades leaving both ways out of town on Route 3.
