The taller of the two smokestacks on site. Note the crack around its crown.
What time is it?
Someone had helped themselves to one of the safety posters before my visit.
The brick substation and the wooden storage shed are the last two structures from The Milwaukee Road’s operations at Loweth.
This building seemed like a pump house or compressor house. It was full of empty concrete mounts.
The Blacksmith Shop (right) was connected to the Bunk House (left) via this narrow walkway. This is likely due to the fire risk in each building. The left building had a cooking stove and furnace for heat and the right building had a small industrial furnace to repair mining equipment. A little walkway would mean that a fire on one side would be easier to fight from the other.
I assume this sign used to sit near the highway that snakes around the mine and town.
Sharks in the floor.
Note the large belt pulley in the center of the frame. Follow the axel it’s on and you’ll see several belts still attached to the drive, which was originally steam-driven.
