Michael Haynes Cannelton locks & dam. 2 4000’s @ 125 tons, 2 39A’s, 2 71-B’s, a 54-B, a steam derrick boat and 2 Clyde Whirley gantry’s. That’s all it took to build locks and dams
Darrin Liegel Michael Haynes Didn’t know they made a 4000 rated@ 125 ton
John George 125 ton 4000’s were non W’s. I think there were 125 ton vicons. The 125 were 24’ long and 17’ wide. W’s were 24’ long and 21’ wide

It appears the hydropower plant has yet to be built. I added Global Earth views below.
Ryan Burleson posted three photos with the comment: "Found these working at the Cannelton locks and dam. I'm fixing the RT in the bottom of the lock."

Jack Hines Long walk for tools, isn't it!Ryan Burleson Yes sir. About 5 stories of stairs and the length of a lock twice. That's just one way. I did a lot work with 1 pair of pliers. LolJack Hines Ryan Burleson I'll bet, I always carried a pair of channel lock in my back pocket.
