Theres 20 lengths on 1/2 chain doubled over holding this down to D rings welded to the deck. Ten steel stopper blocks at each end 12x8x2 welded all around with 1/2+ welds. Three 6x8x2 blocks welded on each side. Should stay put. I stuck a gps tracker to it so we can follow its trip.

Yes. Its the generator shaft, couples to the turbine shaft at one end and the generator rotor near the other end.

You should have got a pic of it with the crazy loading crew standing below it..

 

I can imagine the caption... "Huge shaft and the nuts that pushed it up there..." :lol:

Good thing you put a GPS tracker on it. The railroads tend to loose out flour cars that go to the bakeries from time to time. Lol

Yeah we were a little apprehensive about the whole situation at first. They wont let it go that far over the road though.

In other news, I saw a pair of these headed through town today. Usually they’re part of a long train, but two fuselages were the only load on this one. Must be a little squeezed for time.

Was only miles away from Goodpasture in Galena Park TX on the ship channel when it blew in February 1976. Rattled everything for miles around. You could see pieces of metal flashing thousands of feet up in the sky. Growing up on the Houston Ship Channel in the 60s & 70s, explosions were an all too regular fact of life.
