    The about pictures all was going good until a mine boss came by and I was told I was not to climb up on truck and I needed safety stuff. So no inside cab stuff, the set up crew did not bother me. About a week later I hear from build guys that at end of day they were going to start truck a few checks then drive behind fence where box was. So we went up this time with a old white hard had safety vest boots etc got some more pictures Mine wheels were looking out office windows and shop but left me alone this time.

    Truck warmed up and moving for the first time under its own power. 53.JPG 54.JPG 56.JPG 57.JPG

    November 12, 2010 I was retired from bus when I was asked if i would take a school bus of kids to the mine to see the new big shovel as the mine bosses had kids in grade 6 and 7 so of course I said yes....

    Somewhere we had a pix, when my dad took a tour of the brand new Big Muskie, they parked the (2) tour busses in the bucket.

    A bit of a story here, as I was retired and asked to take kids on this trip I jumped yes . Got to mine and unloaded kids Mine bosses had loader all ribboned off and was tell kids all about the loader and shovel. When done the boss guys said hot dogs and hot chocolate at shop kids and teachers thanked the mine guys. So Like I thought I have one chance of a life time here so I yelled out everyone get in shovel bucket There was cheers and kids jumped on in. Mine bosses were not happy with me and said they would let school know what I did say and it was not safe. So I said go ahead you want the phone ## and get in if you want your picture taken. So here it is.

    That pix immediately brought to mind the Pink Floyd line in one of their songs...:

    There were four 830 Haulpaks in this territory some years ago. They came with 149 Detroit engines that were pulling way to high of horsepower. Cylinder packs started burning out at a round 5,000 hours. The customer put the big Cummins engines in those in short order.

    Should easily go that long. They have a (relatively) easy life running what is effectively a generator set. With trolley assist the engines should go even longer than that.

    Is it just me or does Hank's photo above appear to show that the pantograph of the truck isn't even touching the trolley wires.?

    It does appear the pantograph is down.
    Enlarging the pix, looks like their is a smaller wire that is in contact.
    The large wires appear to be too high for the pantograph to reach, even if they extend
    the pantograph some more.

    BTW what is the large red digit display facing the camera, opposite the operators cab ? it appears to be reading "210"

    The "scoreboard". It displays the payload in tonnes or US tons depending on how the system is set up.
