If you read the caption below, Herb, the lady said that the mill no longer functions but the owners keep water going over the wheel so that it turns.
Here where I live we have lotsa mills that no longer function but are now neat stores and such. There is one that still makes flour and sells bread but it doesn't look very interesting from a modeling standpoint.
Bernd, your right. A Falkirk Wheel type mechanism for trains would be cool but making one would be way beyond my ability
Nice find Jose. That's the Bale Grist Mill in St. Helena, Napa Valley, CA
I liked it so much I downloaded a bunch of photos to build it....I hope.
