Lockport Powerhouse also has a used turbine on display. Unfortunately, it is displayed so far from the powerhouse that I do not have a good image of it. The photo on the right is at camera resolution extracted from the following photo. It is beyond the concrete walls that you can see.
On the bus ride back from the tour, I tried to grab a shot of it through a window as we drove by it without getting passenger's face in the image. This is the best piece of equipment I have seen that has been retired from service.
Judging from a cross-section of the waterway of the Keokuk Powerhouse, it also uses a Kaplan turbine.
