Breaker 2: Electric Boogaloo





Went back to the Coal Breaker again. Last time it was a bit rainy but this time we had perfect weather. I got to explore a lot more of the outlying buildings. I redid a lot of shots because the light was so much better.



1. This is the building into which the bulk coal arrived. It had 2 sets of train tracks with seemingly two different ways coal could be dumped. One side looks like it had fingers that grabbed the top of the rail car and a huge mechanism rotated the rail car either on it's side or maybe as much as completely upside down to dump it. The other side was much simpler and was just a grate which I suppose would require a rail car where the bottom could be opened up to dump coal...

2. The other side where the bottom dumpers dropped coal into...

3. Underneath the rotating assembly. You can see it is like a big round tumbler that is rotated by a cable pulling it...

6. You can see the fingers that came down to clamp onto the rail car. Once the coal was dumped it went down into hoppers. The main coal conveyor going into the building actually runs underground below this building...

7. Here is the main conveyor where it first comes out of the ground...

Note: This is my first post in this community. I usually post in urban exploration related communities. However I take pictures of all kinds of stuff and want somewhere to post those as well. But for now here is my latest set of photos.
