PS: you can see the 'horse head'---the part we see bobbing up & down when it's running--is actually detached & flipped backwards for transport.
The owner had the old steam-powered engine that was used many years ago to power oil rigs and he wanted a cover to protect it, so I built that beside his barn. The engine is only used for fun. Many old timers like to hear the sound they make while running. It is not connected to anything.
Visit the Oil & Gas Museum in Parkersburg, WV to see many of these old engines.
Good work! I'm due an upgrade on my phone soon and will look out for the HTC One. Regards, Brian
Thank you @jonmac33. For me, that's one of the more noble purposes of photography.
Nice composition. LIKE and greetings from Michigan.

A very poignant image. I was there also in 1980 and took a similar image to this which is posted on my site. I too have the same feelings about the buildings and having been to the top of them with my sister who lives in New York State i was left in wonderment by them.
But why these people did such a thing to destroy them and the lives of those poor soles who died beggars belief....such an awful and sad day.
WolfDreamer1112, this Cabin has been in my family since the late 1940's. . . Its one of the hidden gems of the whole state of West Virginia. We finished building this one in 1984.
Next Thanksgiving, you should finally stop Sumbody. . .
Wow...forgot I had this account. This was summer 2006.
Really neat photo...
