Project Information

In 1994, Big Red was contacted to relocate the historic 1934 Burlington Zephyr. The once world record breaking locomotive was transported from its’ outside display area at the “Museum of Science and Industry” in Chicago, to Milwaukee, WI for restoration and refurbishment. After a 3-year facelift, the team at Big Red moved the 50 Ton train to its’ final resting place within the new parking structure at the museum. This marvel of early 1900’s engineering can now be viewed and enjoyed by visitors to the facility, thanks to our experience crew.
