The Silver Spade, a giant electric mining shovel. These pictures were taken in 2004, shortly before the thing was decomissioned. It was scheduled to be moved across the road to a mining exhibit area, but broke literally at the end of it's last shift.
The cab currently sits across the road on display, next to the Stumptown show grounds at New Athens, Ohio.
We were probably a good quarter mile or more away from the thing. That's a full size semitruck in the pit with it!
