The unearthed Manchester Locomotive we scouted months earlier finds a new home at the Mulberry Phosphate Museum in Central Florida.
Manchester Locomotive Moves to New Home
The big move of the Manchester locomotive 4-4-0 from the Mosaic property where it was unearthed to its new home at the Mulberry Phosphate Museum happened this week. As of this writing, the frame of the shelter has also been erected. Kudos to all of the corporate, state, and city government officials for treating this ancient American relic with great care and putting it on display for everyone to see for generations to come.
Jerry stopped by the museum during his break last Monday and snapped these shots of the locomotive being moved to its new home. Then on Friday, I stopped by after Fine Swine at the Pit and grabbed this shot of the train wrapped in a protective tarp. The City of Mulberry Facebook page has video footage and still shots of the work in progress, and you can read our original post here. Stop by and check it out if you happen to be in the area.
