Meet the removal men with a difference. From a lighthouse to a steam locomotive, these teams take on the challenge of relocating massive monuments, overcoming huge hurdles in the process.
We start with Risky Rescue where a team moves an entire lighthouse off a cliff on Nantucket Island before the crumbling cliff gives way, and specialists relocate houses threatened by a mine collapse in a Swedish town. Then in 100 Tonne Train, a British team of haulers are appointed the job of taking a vintage steam locomotive from Bloemfontein in South Africa to Glasgow where it was originally built sixty years ago. With transport police ruling a truck incapable of lifting such a load the 600 miles to Durban port, the team needs to find an alternative plan.
