Unloading the Elephant

Hi Thomas,
I'm new to this forum, but I wanted to thank you for your post about the Elephant. When I was at Aberdeen a few years ago, I was buying a model Elephant in the souvenir shop. The lady behind the counter asked me if I wanted to see a real one. I told her that I had already been out to the lot and did not see one. She informed me that one had been recently delivered by rail to a spot down the road that Anzio Annie is on. During the unloading, the chains had broken and they just left it where it was until they could figure a way to transport it to the reconditioning area. I took a drive down the road and sure enough there it was, all alone, sitting out there in a field. I wish I had taken a picture, but given the security restrictions, I thought better of it. Again, thanks for the post and the pictures.
