One of the crew said the crane scale showed it weighed 40,000 pounds.
By 14:30 the crane was free and it was ready to go.
There was someone on hand from the Edmundston tourist bureau, admiring her new acquisition. I think it will look very nice in front of their restored station.
The caboose will go to Fredericton tonight, and be in Edmundston by Tuesday night.
You can see the caboose on Google Street View beside the ex CP station in Edmundston.
