                                                Undated photo but the winter of 1955 when the steamboat Ticonderoga was moved overland from Shelburne Bay to the Shelburne Museum. The ship rests on a cradle to which it is welded and moves along railroad tracks laid on the frozen ground. The move had to be made in winter in order for the ground to support the rails and the huge amount of weight they had to carry. A helicopter flies above the excursion boat.

                                                  March 25, 1955. The steamship Ticonderoga nears the Rutland Railroad tracks. The workmen are laying sections of temporary track leading up to the permanent ones. The plan is to have the boat cross the Rutland tracks between trains traveling north and south. The boat has traveled 9000 of its 9250 foot journey to the Shelburne Museum. Photo 152.
