B&E

Down near Ferris, Texas this enormous piece of machinery, a Bucyrus & Erie Walking Dragline Excavator, sits gathering rust at it's last job site.

 

The sense of scale is a little difficult to interpret from the photo, but this thing is huge; about 3/4 of a football field long. The engine room alone is about the size of a two-story tract home.

 

Almost actual size?

 

Night, full moon, natural X2000 flashlight.
