Once again I am asking: What happened to the two locomotive cranes? They were reported as going to the Monon Connection Museum. Did they?

John:
I'm sure they rank as high as the Baldwin diesel does in terms of saving them. The crane saves the best of the museum items but probably gets scrapped because it's nothing more than a crane !
SAD !!!!

If you read the additional requirements...pdf attached to each on Ozark...
You might note that even a scrapper would have to move them off property to dispose of them....that likely puts them out of reason for scrapping right now...unless there's a convenient site very close by....
Moving them is the major factor, with no rail connection, it's either truck to rail or all the way... That's probably going to be in the $30k range per piece, with crane costs, etc...
With the condition of the stuff, they need to come down on the pricing...
The most I could see offering, not having seen it in person...only pictures, would be maybe $75-$100k for everything that's left....engines, freight and pax cars, etc...and whatever is in them....
5-6 locomotives, 3 pax cars....not counting the freight cars....is going to be around $240k to move.....it gets into big money very fast....

I saw the PDF on ORM, I'm not sure if the city is trying to avoid further environmental issues (a possibility) or is sympathetic to the historic equipment - or both!

Something interesting that ITM had squirreled away, a turntable on a TTTX flat at the Indianapolis water plant (third photo in the OP, I tried to post the photo but couldn't resize it), still there as of June 14.

This is the table from the old B&O Moorefield Yards on the west side of Indianapolis, and has been at the water co for many, many years, and undoubtedly will leave it in a scrap truck, as will the rest of the line, which is due to be pulled up by the end of July.
