This shot provides a view of the lower pulleys situated between the two
bucket pits. The cable wraps around a spool just inside the structure. The
two pulleys here on the outside line up with the upper pulleys in the hoist
house on top. Photo by Dave Dye on May 28, 1989.
This shot is taken from above the pulleys and you can see the two cables
heading up to the top of the tower. Also visible are the pulleys and chains
used to operate the coal gates for dumping coal into the buckets. The rods
extend into the shed where a large diameter handle is used to manual lift/lower
the gates. Photo by Dave Dye on May 28, 1989.
