Those are really awesome pics too, what a cool move.

Really makes the dragline size comparison a bit more "real".

Don't know if they have strip mines out east, but the equipmnt used is massive.

That is a link to an article about the Silver Spade, the largest strip mineing shovel in the world.

Nice pics, and an intresting move.

The last doesn't seem to be the best way to move a power line, perhaps a telephone line?

The last pick looks like it could be photocontest worthy. The guy with the broom taped to a pole, and the other guy looks to be drinking something.

If N scale had good SD40-2s, C30-7s, U30Cs, SD45s, SD40s, and SW10s; I'd be in N scale.

I remember seeing a pic of the Morgan Co. (Ohio) HS band inside the bucket of Big Muskie. (not that they had a big band, but still...)
