The old girl has been turned. Boom is now facing west.
Steve Postin I thought it was parked facing west.
Shawnetta Compton A wicked storm turned her facing north several years ago. Before my time at wild boar.
Zachary Postin It was but they say tornado or high winds moved it north and apparently they moved it back where its facing west again. I'm going to check it out here in a bit I was just out there 2 weeks ago and it was facing north
[Quite a few comments concern if and who will rebuild it using modern AC equipment.]
While it was facing north, people could get good side views of it from the road: 1, 2, 3. Casey's Flickr photo has some informative comments.
Murph Dogg made a Lego model of it and provided the comments near the end of his web page:
This is the Squaw Creek 1360w, currently parked at the newly opened Wild Boar Mine near Lynnville, Indiana. The machine has been parked for about 10 years and was completely stripped and gutted by vandals and copper thieves. The machine made news in the mining machine enthusiast circuit this past year when it's idled boom swung about 30-40 degrees in high winds. The machine may see future work again at Wild Boar if the economy improves.
A Facebook photo when it was still working at Squaw Creek Mine. (Choose "Not Now" if you are not a member of Facebook.) I found the source of the Facebook photo.
Carl King posted four photos after it was facing West again with the comment: "Driving around on Sunday and thought these were pretty good pictures of the old Squaw Creek 1360."
They don't seem to be moving the dirt very far in this video. (new window) This must be the other 1360W that was built and shipped to Alberta.
