Ore Yard Sunrise Early bird gets the blast furnace. You gotta love that ore yard gantry crane. Similar Images ...based on the tags: cranes, dirt-roads, furnaces, smokestacks... Showering red-hot coke fresh from the furnaces near the Coal Tower (in the back) was the Quenching Tower’s duty (front). Halfway up the coal conveyor, covered in coal dust… black streaks of snot. Starting to get good. A nice view of the aurora borealis (“Northern Lights”) strong enough to outshine the industrial lighting at the power plant. The lights in the foreground direct ships discharging coal for the station. A look down the 1950s foundry building, moments after sunset. Counter-weighted ore cars alternately filled and emptied to feed Furnace 7. Honestly, though, the corner-mounted cranes are sexier in my opinion. Note the trees growing from the stacks. This gives you a sense for what it looks like to stand on the roof of the main production building at sunset. The dredge is divided into four levels. The top level has controls for the tailings boom and, when it was there, the bucket excavator. Looking at the rear of the mill, through dead vines and barbed wire. Death. About two seconds after the explosives were triggered.
