Looking out at the abandoned neighborhood around the house.
The light towers of Allouez seem romantic compared to the street lights atop Dock 5.
The Dock 5 sign at track level. Probably as an aid to sailors reboarding their vessels.
For a short time, CN mounted flood lights atop the abandoned dock.
The control room was used through the mid-1990s as the plant was used to stabilize the power grid.
In case power was lost, this manual signal could direct trains on and off the taconite trestle. Turning the pole would change the color of the light on top and the shape of the metal flags.
A furnace control panel, cut off its subordinate before the plant closed, no doubt to be replaced. I like this shot because it shows that many of the smaller machines were engineered by the plant itself.
