This shot provides a closeup of the gate lift pulleys, chain and rod.
The rod is turned using a large diameter handle inside the shed. This wraps
the chain around the larger pulley which in turn causes the coal gate to
be pulled up directly under the smaller pulley. Coal then falls from the
coal bin into the bucket to be hoisted up to the top of the tower. Photo
