Yesterday, we drug the travel trailer out to a place called Robson's Mining World near Aguilla, AZ. My dad is an old engine nut and volunteers to "play" with everything so they have running examples during shows. Picture number one is a corner view of what you see when you first enter the main street. Next up, since I need to keep this train related, you can see an old mining train type thing. The rest of the pictures don't really have much to do with trains directly, but since mining and trains often went hand in hand, hopefully you can make an exception. Next up, there was this huge motor with a little wrench attached to the side of it. Any guesses on how big that wrench is? I'll post the answer later. Lessee, now comes quite a few vehicles. The first two were a couple of characters. The one on the right was not running at this show but my dad says he will have it running for the next one. It's actually an old dump truck that is operated by a chain lift. The one on the left, we did get started and took it out for a spin. What a blast! It took me three hours to wipe the grin off my face after that ride. Unfortunately, as we were trying to back it back in under the barn, the whole shifting linkage broke off and we had to park her where she stopped. Off to the blacksmith with the broken parts and a short while later she was ready to be put back together. A couple more trucks... the one on the left was operating... the one on the right was not. And, a bunch of engines... ALL of which were running, making noise, and one diesel that made an incredible amount of smoke. This one was my favorite, a 1919 White. Last year, evidently they towed it all over trying to get it start with no luck. This year they did not even try. Too bad.... I wanted a ride in that one! This was the neatest little bulldozer type thing. It was designed real low to fit inside of a shaft. The bucket actually rides up over the cab on rails and dumps the contents into a cart following behind. And as you can see it is getting late in the day. This last one is a cute little dump truck. Can you imagine how tight the turning radius is on this one? Don't forget to give me a guess on the size of that wrench mentioned up above! If you liked these pictures and want to see a few more, let me know.
