Both those draglines are still around. The Marion 8700 is the front one. The 8700 is undergoing major repairs right now but will be up and running in a month or so. I wish there was a truck or something in the picture for scale but to give you a idea the boom point is 300 feet in the air. The Bucyrus Erie 1250, A.K.A. The Anthracite King is the dragline up above the 8700. That one is going to get some TLC in the spring and will most likely be back in service shortly after.
