I assume that a stack is a smokestack. There certainly is no smoke stack in the Transit District compound. However, there is a tower nearby. I took a photo in case this is what is meant by stack.

Well, as best as I can tell, the coordinates would put this stack inside of the mass transit district's main garage. While I didn't trespass into the garage and check, I think it's gone. If anybody else can confirm this, it might as well be logged as destroyed.

This garage is where my coordinates say the stack should be, which leads me to believe it no longer exists.
