Here are some photos from a few visits over the years.
My last trip through, the restored winch was not there.
Lots of mineral displays and other things of interest..
The main draw for me is ACCo #2, one of 5 remaining (4 on display) 20"
steam locomotives. Enjoy....

The restored winch was most impressive, a real labor of love...:thumb:





















This displayed photo shows a similar winch in service deep in a mine....

Here are a couple of multi pannel photo wall displays...




And myself "imagineering" in #2 and my lovely wife who puts up with my adventures...
She has sat in more engines and been drug through more mines than you can imagine, and still willingly travels with me....


Thanks, Deb...  :glad:

The building going up in the back ground is not part of the head frame....












Does anyone know if they ever completed this stamp mill before they closed???
They looked pretty close to having it ready to assemble...L:

Wow! :apl: Thanks for putting those up. I never had the chance to get to the museum before it was closed. That winch is great.

The stamp mill is now assembled and looks pretty neat. I will take a picture and post it if I get the opportunity.

Sorry, all I got is a view of the back side of the mill.  It was a neat set up, from Prescott area if I remember right.  The sign explaining it is pretty warn out unfortunately.

Interesting, that is not where I pictured them putting the stamp mill.
The crossing track is interesting, but I liked the ore cars coupled up
to the Porter better.... L:
The incline is also interesting.
Thanks, Dan
Ken
