About: The machine has been running for over 120 years and powered mine equipment in the 1800s!
Really enjoyed this
Sweet tour! I was up there in the spring and had the incredible good fortune to help Hal do an oil change on the generator and check out the intakes. Sandon is such a historical gem.
Amazing generator. Does anyone know how much power (megawatts) the generator creates?
As an IT guy Tesla FTW! Awesome video as always.
wow just wow..westinghouse motor...fantastic
I truly hope the old locomotive is restored back to life someday, Ay'
i could just sit there in that generator room and listen to that thing go all day, i love the sound of machinery running like that
First vid of your's I watched, 600 ft deep Mexican mine, your voice made me think you were a Scotsman. This vid makes me think you're Canadian. You're a well traveled Scotsman traveling in Canada arendt cha eh? Like the exploration. When people say "don't go there" I go there too.
Awesome audio nice reverb and bass. Nice to see the old equipment still going. They do not build like that any more . Reminds me of the old compressor that was in the building I used to work at we used it up until the late 1990's then we needed more pressure and finally turned it off . It was a scary thing to start up . Not a lot of safety guards and the big exposed electric motor would spark a bit. Such a difficult balance for preserving things naturally or restoring them or just letting them return to the ground. So many things lost in time.
Definitely cool place
Another awesome video! Frank, thanks again for preserving these images for the rest of us to view.
How can one man run this whole town? Is he rich or something.. I see no helping hands in that town
If you included that mint 51 Blackstone diesel generator in the title you would get a lot of attention from folk in England.
360 RPM for 120 years comes out to around 22,721,005,440 rotations. pretty amazing.
Thank you,...awesome to see ''the rest of the story'' to quote an old radio show
Thanks for sharing great vid!

Whatch out for the seldom seen but often heard , southern spotted hillbilly
I want to visit that guy, to me, he looks completely infatuated with the place and everything he has. A real love for history and the equipment.
