As a result of this discussion http://www.ironminers.com/mineforum/vie ... hp?t=21795, I made a quick trip to Hughestown to see what remained of the dragline. Although it's in pieces, Chris was correct--it's clearly being dismantled to me moved, with many (probably all) of its parts identified. I cannot imagine it'll be in Hughestown much longer.
