A procession of vehicles travels with this 230,555-pound Dominion Power transformer down East King Street in Strasburg on Tuesday morning. The transformer was transported by rail outside the Strasburg Museum and loaded onto a 19-axle flatbed tractor trailer. Jamey Brugh of Valley Group Inc. of Roanoke contracted J. Supor & Son of New Jersey to provide the tractor trailer. The convoy traveled south on U.S. Route 11 to the Dominion Power substation just outside Edinburg. Along the way, the convoy had to have some traffic lights lifted to allow the tractor trailer to travel under them. Rich Cooley/Daily
