Depot Museum Caboose III - Moving the Caboose
While a small crowd gathered in excitement to watch the city of Fortuna claim its newest prize for Rohner Park last week, Parks and Recreation Director John Crotty was too busy worrying about fingers and toes to take much notice.
About four hours later, with the caboose in place and every member of his crew intact, Crotty conceded he was finally having a good time.
Individuals who have stepped forward, according to Crotty, include Dennis Wendt, a Fortuna contractor who provided trucks to haul the caboose; Tim Crawley of North Coast Fabricators, who provided a crane to assist with the transporting of the caboose; Rogan Coombs, Harry Pond and Rich Sweet, who assisted with work on the caboose; and Woody Murphy, Alan Burchett, Ron Plies, Bruce Evans, Marcus Brown and the Pacific Lumber Co.
