UTICA, NY - The locomotive by the former Children's Museum in Bagg’s Square is on the move.
Crews prepared the vintage train for transport Wednesday morning, through the afternoon.
Tracks were laid to move the locomotive and adjoining car from its longtime home outside of Union Station to a rig which will transport it to Remsen.
In the summer of 2019, the Utica/Mohawk Valley chapter of the National Railway Historical Society estimated the cost to move the locomotive would be between $50,000-$60,000.
The Children's Museum is in the process of moving to a new location on Utica’s Memorial Parkway.
