Steam shovel Platform
Birk just sent me this photo and says, "The past couple days I've been extending the platform on the steam shovel. It now has three times the area of the casting that supports the machinery. It is starting to look pretty big, and I have concluded that if the digger does not work I can remove the hoisting machinery and use the thing to haul hay. An image taken day before yesterday is attached. Since then I almost have the deck plates fitted and installed, but their installation has to be worked in with cutting holes for control rods, etc, so it goes slow."
