Moving Locomotive #278 off Historic Bridge

by Jim Houlette on May 19, 2010

Last week four historic train cars, including Locomotive #278, were removed from their resting place on the historic bridge in Cimarron, CO.   EVstudio provided structural engineering services for the temporary bridge span and assisted with keeping a pair of eyes on the structure during the move.  EVstudio assisted a great team including Au Authum Ki, Inc and Disher and Company.

Here are some pictures and video of the move.  Everything went good during the move and we were very excited to be a part of this project.

The video is poor quality and unsteady.  I was filming with my hand held digital camera without aiming since my eyes were focused on the bridge as that was my priority during the move.
