Using the 4449 crew's forklift and a cradle they made, we pull the units out with a come-along into the cradle. Then the forklift lays them down outside where we are stacking them. Working here are Jim Vanderbeck who just got off the forklift, Matt Baccitich and David Thompson in the smokebox. Photo by Terry Thompson
