Not sure what the story is but I was told it was less than 2 miles from the museum it was going to.

Built February 1942.

Just noticed it's a SW1 no MU…. so run it as the first convertible?

From what I gather…
>Truck driver blames the pilot car driver for leading him under the overpass
>Pilot car driver blames the trucking company for giving them bad directions
>Trucking company blames the subcontractor that did the route survey
>Subcontractor could not be reached for comment
>Someone's insurance is gong to foot the bill for the restoration, so yay?
Isn't this complete lack of accountability at all levels grand?

the whole point of the pilot car is to test clearances ahead of the trailer with a high pole, it shouldn't matter what route they take, the pole should've whacked into the bridge and the pilot should've stopped the convoy

Per the story, it belongs to a private owner, and was being transported from the old site of the Indiana Transportation Museum to the new site. All involved are hoping insurance will cover the estimated $75,000 in repair costs.

God, the ITM situation was an unbelievable mess, and just when you thought it was over… RIP to the SW1 that DID get scrapped in this mess (although truth be told, it was beyond finished with being an operating piece)
