Saturday morning's activity in Pierce City drew a number of spectators as volunteers labored for several hours to relocate the Frisco caboose, which sat next to Casey's General Store for the past several years. Workers first lifted the 60,000-pound steel box off the wheels and set it on a flatbed trailer. The huge steel wheels were then placed on another trailer and taken to a prepared site next to City Hall at One Frisco Place in Pierce City. The entire operation took about six hours.
