David Hope's

"1450 being moved"  Pics.

As many of you already know, Peabody Coal Co. sold a parked Bucyrus Erie 1450 dragline to Martin Marietta Minerals. The drag was refurbished and shipped by barge to it's new home in the Bahamas. Since the work was going on it a remote location, and took some time to complete, a trip to see it would have been a waste of time.  Thankfully, David Hope lives in the area and was willing to capture the events in pictures, for all of us to enjoy. Here are the pictures he took for US.
