Here's another photo of the "OQ" in its natural habitat... The guys have apparently been workin' her some as she appears to be headed towards some sort of rock slide up ahead.

Notice how, back in here heyday, they used chain instead of cables to lift the shovel's workin's... The fellow on the boom had a real job on his hands, didn't he? Can't you just imagine yourself up there, crowding that shovel in and out with a steam engine flailing away almost at your left elbow?
