MEC 470 is slated to be lifted on the morning of Monday, August 8, 2016.
People wishing to view the loading of 470 should plan to park elsewhere and walk to the viewing area. The Pan American Railroad parking lot will probably restricted to the use of employees only. The park where 470 is located will only be available to New England Steam Corporation workers, the cranes and trucks required to accomplish the move. Visitors vehicles are not permitted in the work area. There is no parking along College Avenue, per order of the police department. A portable toilet will be available to the workers and public.
Rigging will begin once the cranes are positioned on Monday morning.
