    Headed to Brooks Ore for the truck show, there was around 1,000 trucks there last year. The Brooks show is the last week in August each year.

    @Truck Shop and @RZucker : Omega-Morgan is doing a 1+ million lb. 360' long 21' tall move the nights of the 17/18 & 18/19 SR-14 & then up US-97. Should be pretty cool stuff knowing them.

    That would will be a show for sure. If there going the route of 14 then 97 the grade at Maryhill to Goldendale will be a super major pull as many parts of 97 will be.
    Big event for the little town of Stevenson. What are they moving? ---Thanks, Crummy.

    They have some awesome equipment.
    The loader looks like it's doing its share.

    Massive transformer. Similar to what we had at my last employer. Each of these was a single phase step up from 24,000v to 365,000v, held 10,000 gal. mineral oil in Each one. Plus a spare. We had these four a Unit Auxiliary that fed back into the plant at power a Startup for getting it all running and two main ring bus feeder units as big or bigger. Not to mention all the support units.
