Hi Jose and all,
Here's the Aussie equivalent, Big Bruce at 35' diameter - It also has a railway connection.http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-09-01/windmills-brought-back-from-the-grave-for-new-museum/7805292 
It really is at the back of beyond - on the edge of the Nullabor Plain,

Windmill museum is a cool thing. Being a kite flyer may or may not be a factor in that I'd really like to know that Laramie job's wind ratings.
