Description

February 5, 1955. Wooden timbers stretch across between the double railroad tracks upon which the steamship Ticonderoga inches its way overland to its final resting place, the Shelburne Museum. The tracks were laid in 300 foot sections in front of the vessel. Crewmen work the tracks to keep the ship online. The move was made in the winter so the frozen ground could support the rails and the immense weight. Photo 124.
