Think that they cut the shaft to move it for loading. It looks as if the trees are obstructing a clean lift of the locomotive. I would think that they wanted to pick up the front end and walk it out of the tree line, then load it. Anyone know how they got it on the truck…?

You can move anything if you are willing to pay the price!
If you work on a limited budget, you do things the most cost effective way.
There is another locomotive move coming down next week and I have seen the original bids for both of these moves, and my guess is that this procedure saved a substantial amount of money that could be put toward the restoration, rather than the move.

Why did the rear truck need removing, the entire length of that

I've see Caterpiller Earth Moving Equipment longer & wider
than this locomotive being moved & only problem was "WIDTH"

Not a cutting torch. A metal
cutting disc, to get a smooth cut. As I explained earlier,
the u joints were frozen and the rear truck had to be removed
to transport the loco.
