    The 16000 hasn't been moved for a "month's". I know it suppose to help with Transit Hub (looks like north side). Wouldn't it be cheaper to dissemble it and then bring it back later on, than paying a "rent" each month just to pretty much sit there?

    Are the spines still coming in this week? At 30 feet tall how will they be transported to the site?

    Transportation costs and labor costs to dismantle and then put it back up again make it cheaper to just leave it there. Besides, the company that is using it now owns it.

    Sal, I'm pretty sure that the first few really big ones are going to be single rib and probably in several pieces.

    Weren't the lobby columns of 1WTC almost 70 feet tall and 75 tons?

    But they were just a few feet square.

    The nodes are complex and bulky.

    I really do not want to post pics of the structural drawings online. Take my word for it, the steel in the Transit Hub is far more massive and complex than that in T1.

    Speaking of the 16000 they actually were using it today. It looked like they were unloading some stuff onto the area just north of the PATH mezannine (behind the blue trailers).

    Manlifts were being unloaded and lifted next to the #1 box

    That's odd: Whatever that ^ was is now gone ...

    I think it was just an interplay of shadows.
    On the other note, the 18000 woke up in the middle of the day and was moving something around!
    Maybe first one of the supercolumns or truss section will be placed soon...
    (It was mentioned somewhere that one of the western supers is in place, but on one of the pics posted earlier, overlooking west side of the box, I did not notice anything that looked like one...)

    P.S. Oh heeyy, "something" is being lifted!

    I think they are just turning one of the supers over so they can weld the other side.


    I still don't see any spine node pieces.
