Crews from Imhoff Crane Service and Ballard Transfer Co. painstakingly settle a 1903 steam crane onto a flatbed trailer for transport from the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie to its new home, a bistro cafe now under development by owner Jon Burgett.

The museum traded the crane, which isn’t part of the core collection and has been out of sight along the highway for some years, for paving materials.

Burgett intends to use the crane's derrick to hold up an awning as part of the cafe.
