Bucyrus Erie 190B

Now here's one CLEAN machine. This BE190B has been parked nearly 15 years, but too look at it, it could have been parked yesterday.

I crawled all over this machine, and was impressed with it's condition after all of the time it's been idle. After you see the following pictures I'm sure you'll agree.

P.S. If anyone out there is having trouble deciding what to get me for christmas this year, well.... this is it. #1 on my wish list.  If I can get this machine to Cadiz, slap some paint on it, and smear "STRIPMINE.ORG" down the side, I guarantee that I'll be wearing a smile for  a loooooong time.
