Wolfe House Movers is currently working on lifting and relocating a historic armory along the Bengaluru-Mysuru rail track in Srirangapatna, India.

The 33′ x 44′ masonry structure was set mostly below ground with only the upper several feet of wall, the roof, and the entry above ground. The armory is to be moved around 300′ off to the side so an additional rail line can be completed.

You can read about the project here and see a nice infographic on the move here.
