    Seems like that was the building where they kept the spare antenna.

    @slobill Yep, I think they call it the maintance hanger. I just love the Hein's Trein, it's one the coolest things I've every seen.

Very Large Array

The VLA is astronomical observatory consisting of 27 large dish shaped antennas that are connected to work together as one very large radio telescope. The array is arranged on three arms shaped like a Y, each arm is 13 miles/21 km long. The Antenna can be repositioned along the arms using the specially designed Hein's Trein on the railroad tracks that form the Y-shape.
