Some local kids were having a fire extinguisher fight when I walked into the lab one day.
A wide view of the steam pump room, complete with pistons (taken apart for their brass), flywheels (covered in graffiti and rust) and pressure gauges (smashed apart for fun). I guess what I’m trying to say is, I was not disappointed.
Considering the side of Boiler #3’s firebox, where it meets the boiler (between the cylinders). The top piece is where the exhaust is sucked into the chimney, one chimney for each pair of boilers.
The roof of the elevator was partly lit naturally with six big skylights. The less electricity pumped into a grain elevator, the less chance of a grain dust explosion.
In the soft wood of the machine, an employee left their mark.
I’ll remember the neon glow fondly.
Sunset through a stained window in the headhouse made the floor feel like a heavy industrial Disney movie.
The dredge is divided into four levels. The top level has controls for the tailings boom and, when it was there, the bucket excavator.
After climbing the elevator shaft to the illusive second level, a new pallet of colors were revealed.
