Here is the photos to go along with the trip on day 2. Most of these pictures were taken at the Connecticut Antique Machinery Museum in Kent Connecticut.


Image
Before proceeding to the trip, we stopped at Miner Dave's house and got to visit Miner Henry the Donkey.




Image
Miner Henry is a good boy, we are planning on setting up a nice ore car track to put Miner Henry to some good use.




Image
At the Connecticut Antique Machinery Museum, one of the displays was an old Mine Signal sign. Wait a minute, these levels look very familiar ... Sterling Hill Mine in NJ!




Image
Another display was setup with a miner using a rock drill.




Image
Outside the museum, a nice side dump Ore Car sitting on 24 inch narrow gauge.




Image
Near the ore car, we found a Rock Mucking Machine.




Image
Another view of the mucker




Image
Miner CTMike at the switch controls while Miner Mike pushes the car.




Image
A cute little storage battery mine locomotive or mine motor. No batteries inside though. It looked complete otherwise.

Image
Looking back at the switch and rail




Image
Old hand cranked air compressor




Image
Inside the museum, a look at one of the many massive steam engines - ALL OPERATIONAL

A pretty neat Cooper Bessemer hit and miss engine.




Image
Here is one of the prizes, a Vulcan Ironworks 36" Gauge Saddle Tank Locomotive! This one is 0-4-0T. Written on the side of this steam engine is "American Steel and Wire Company Northworks" No. 18.

The crew with the lokie




Image
A view from behind. A few parts and components are missing, some rust through, but overall pretty nice.




Image
The Kent Blast Furnace. In pretty good shape overall.




Image
Another view from the side.




Image
Inside the front. Apparently some of the brick had just starting falling this year.




Image
This is a look in the side of the furnace.




Image
Right near the furnace, a shot along the river. Figured I'd take a shot.




Image
You can't have mine pictures without a flower shot..
