Diversion in the Shaft House A hydraulic ‘bridge’ couple lower onto the tracks to bring mine cars into the shaft house, presumably for repair. I haven’t found this system anywhere else, but it makes a lot of sense. Similar Images ...based on the tags: black&white, fences, headframes, machinery, staircases... Sluice tables stretch into the darkness. The ruins of the the Hubert Mine over the ruins of Nevadaville. Its ore was taken through the town to a mill below it. The incinerator’s hardened steel door… useless, but still sexy in a heavy-industrial kind of way. Inside this small iron clad mine is a couch and some clothes. It seems that for a short while, someone was living inside of it… One of the early automated painting booths in the paint plant line. One thing that struck me as a midwesterner in the South was the vines. They seem to be able to completely cover a building when left alone for a few decades. I don’t think we’re anywhere near maximum pressure anymore. This is a great example of a combination rock house; the silos below used to fill trains with ore dropped from mine cars pulled to the top of the structure. Grain is taken from the bottom of the silos through a conveyor in a tunnel. These blowers keep the air in the tunnel fresh.
