The second transformer being unloaded using a special transporter. Each axle automatically raises and lowers itself to keep the load level. The man in the yellow vest is controlling the machine with a remote control. Water was pumped into and out of compartments in the barge to keep it level and at the correct height as the weight of the transformer was moved.
The transformer being parked for the night.
The captain of the tug liked to have a little fun with the spectators.
The second transformer headed west on Main Street near Drumlin Drive.
