I went out to the plane today and took some photos of the ruins and (what I think is) the Lawrence Colliery.

yes nice shots, i like the tunnel that goes under the plane for the mine cars. i have some pics of that from around 2001 when there was no spray paint on it. also, i believe that slope and airshaft are filled about 50 feet down.
