Town of Garner Relocates Historic Depot and Caboose — February 27 2020

Town of Garner Caboose Move

The Town of Garner, NC contracted Wolfe House Movers to relocate their historic depot and caboose to a new location nearly a mile away. The single-story, frame depot and the caboose were lifted with a Unified Jacking System and moved with Buckingham Power Dolly Systems. Both structures were moved at the same time to save money on lifting the overhead utility lines in the route. The 120 year old depot will operate as a historical museum once it is renovated.

You can see more videos and coverage of the move below from the local CBS 17 station and the Town of Garner News Updates. Check out more of our historic moves on our Projects Page.
