Got a call a few days ago from a lady on the Shullsburg Mining Museum board. She said they had a "working" model of the Eagle Picher Zinc mine donated and wanted to know if I would look at it to see if I could get it up and running again. I said yes and the learning adventure began. As soon as I saw it I knew this was going to be a special treat!
I understand that in the 80's Arnold took this model to the local county fairs and ran it. Since it will now be run by summer workers giving tours at the mining museum I decided to leave the water system out, but everything else is now working just fine. Now it's back to work roofing my house with steel.
