5 was spent removing the final portions of the first floor walls and
preparation for connecting the wheels to transport the tower.
As the tower is being lowered, so is the roof line, which was
once higher then the trains. The
roof is now about half way up the train (Approx 6 feet of
close. We still have
the “Close Clearance” and “Restricted Speed” orders in place
with the railroad until the tower has been moved.
family showed up to take pictures of the tower being disassembled,

Some of the walls and windows from the first floor have already been
transported to the museum and are being stored on the West end of
the temporary building.
May 1, was
to be the move day for the tower but rain set in so no activity at
the tower. I went by
the tower to make sure that the orange safety fence was still in
place..all ok there.
The plan is to move the tower on
