    The Old 470 locomotive hangs in the air by two cranes as it is loaded on to a truck Monday to be taken to Ellsworth by truck to be restored. The three-day move by the New England Steam Corporation comes after years of fundraising. The locomotive was owned by the city from 1962 until the NESC bought it in 2012.
