One of my favorite visual feature of grain elevators, especially big ones, is how they repeat.
Standing where the Standard Oil’s boiler used to sit; the coal room is on the right, and would have been filled from trackside.
Spring melt flows down the rusty rock house. In the background is the frame for the shaft.
A line of huge machines wait to be used as parts under a long-disused belt drive.
One of the many blast doors. Note the plunger to seal off the airflow in the event of an attack or accidental explosion.
One of the only modern features aboard was its bow and stern thrusters, which would have helped the Ford a lot, if it was not for the fact that without a working engine, forward motion was impossible. Strangely, even before it was scrapped, it could probably move side to side.
A closeup of the old fashioned wood-and-iron flour mill, a little while before they were all scrapped.
