#150 The machine has been running for over 120 years and powered mine equipment in the 1800s!

local Alberta motor yes we now truck it from north of Edmonton that was its last stop and this was one. of the last locomotives in operation, steam locomotives in operation in Canada, many Pacific sold in the 50's to Manitoba Saskatchewan for the company, how did you handle the low platform? What does this thing weigh? 130 tons, so we were able to move it in one piece, mainly because we could have

been

Alberta, yes, but NBC, the bridges were not designed to support that kind of concentrated weight. who still couldn't spread it over enough trailers and axles, so we ended up having to dismantle it and split it into four loads.

You know the chassis was actually the heaviest, it weighed 50/50 a metric ton, so we need to cene the axles, so it probably cost more money to move this here than it should have cost to rebuild it when they built it, so I had screwed all that stuff in, it had a bolt hole, it's not pretty, everything here we had to take off and you can see here here are our codes, yeah, in the numbers where things went back together, it's a Dutch degreaser , right, you just put grease, yes, yes, anyway, when we had everything here, we unloaded the truck, we had a thousand pieces. of a locomotive with numbers, but it will run along the road here and we had built this stretch of track to put it into debt and when the old guy came and looked at this circuit, it didn't look like a steam locomotive and he said they look like parts of a locomotive and yes, he said well, what happened to that, there was a boiler explosion, do you have any future plans for this train, well, I'm going to get old, so this won't happen in my time, but the engineer's reports are quite positive, it is considered a good rebuilder, yes, and the interesting thing about this one is that it is still a charcoal burner, which is very rare, yes, most of the old ones.

More Interesting Facts About,

150 the machine has been running for over 120 years and powered mine equipment in the 1800s...

Coal burners were converted to oil, yes it was much easier, but because this was used by a coal

mine

until it stopped working, they used it with their own coal, they saw it so that it still had a tender of coal and and but it means extensive work, it's deafening that a million dollars can't fix it, so I don't think it'll happen in my time, Frank, yeah, you know, they'll probably come in D when someone else takes over. the reconstruction yes, it could work again there was for the tour, what are these tanks used for? Well, they were fuel and oil tanks.

Okay, for the great euphoria that was there. Okay, so why do they have to use armpits? engines when they had this well and today it doesn't make any sense because we had water everywhere, but when Sandin was in full swing and all the

mine

s were

running

and they were grinding and they needed a lot of energy, water for everything when all the money came to life by then , was much more mechanized than in the late 19th century and they were using every drop of water around here, so the local corporation decided they needed to hedge their bets with an auxiliary engine.

So the most they had was not power for compressed air to run the drills, although about half of it here went to compressing air and the big air compressor here is a water park, but then the other half was electricity . for the mills has

been

operated continuously since 1895 April April 1897 began. What changed is that in 1916 they made a lot of improvements, they converted from direct current to alternating current and Nicolas Nicolas Tesla invented that technology, yeah, well, this is some of the first Tesla Westinghouse

equipment

in the world of the first Westinghouse

equipment

in the world. the world has been in continuous operation since it was known that this was probably the mouth and this power plant was built by that biomine, my mining company.
Yes, he was smoking a star mine, which was the richest mine in Canada. How much power does it have? This generator is capable of generating half a megawatt. Yes, it is quite powerful. The water falls 610 feet into the turbine. How many gallons per minute? What would I do? pass through the planchette 13 cubic feet per second well, not a huge volume but very high, perfect, yeah, so how many psi is it when it gets to the power plant here? 255 is what we designed it to operate, yes, let's take a look at the power plant. here this is the original diesel generator that ran when they didn't have enough water power so they turned it on and it actually drove both the compressor and the generator so see there's a big compressor behind there and that's what it did was compressed air, so it really worked, it actually still works, it just hasn't worked for a long time.
The big compressor was a pretty interesting

machine

. It can be seen

running

and has been running continuously since 1897. It is the oldest continuously running

machine

in Canada Barr Plan there is oil here yes donut shaped lubricated ring that draws oil from the sump the top rock over the cloth bearing which is a software I have oil channels in the south here it is quiet an engine from the early fifties The women returned here for a period of time. My minds were prosperous, that's when they built things, so this is a legacy of the find and this was put in 1951 as a backup.
Here they were assuming that the hydropower equipment is old, it already was. It was over a century old at the time and I guess they needed it worried, it's still great today, but the diesel field was cheap in 1951. They put this big marine engine here. We brought it back to the corners, a diesel compressor. big depressing water park so this says this engine is basically 70

years

old we have the longest running machine in the country and in this room who probably got the most Terry from these blocks there are no engines in the world , probably has the smallest number. of hours, I have small blocks on an engine that has about five horsepower, as I sing on the way up, now this is an air starter motor, so that's what this thing is here for, it's exclusively for that, it's also from 1950, so basically the Same as the wall from the original, this was yeah, a beautiful piece of equipment in the little person governor's estate and that's how it turns out, so that's all the high pressure water coming in here , there are 3,000 tons of water above us in the penstock, which is approximately seventeen thousand seven hundred people are so anniversary
