Nice shots!
Your signature is a little off. It's right click and "save as"

Fixed,
I have my mouse buttons reversed due to carpel tunnel.
-It's far easier to use the right mouse button then use the left and it reduces strain on the wrist/hand irregardless of whether you have wrist pains or not. So for me it really is 'Left click' to save.
In not thinking, I posted my signature the way I would use my mouse.
Thanks for the note.


As far as the hoisted Engine goes, I was amazed to watch youtube clips of Steam Engines being routed around the shops at/around the turn of the century.
It was an eye opener to realize that the overhead cranes that I use everyday were capable of lifting 50 tons (or more) in the early 1900's.

It's a little hard to see in this shot but the Bridge of the crane and the craneway are about at 'eye level' in this overhead shot of the ALCO shops.




From what I can gather, Companies like ALCO used at least a single 35 ton and possibly dual 35 ton in lifting the boilers as much as 100 years ago.
