Steam Shovel with covers off, see inside.

1922 Erie Model “B” Steam Shovel at HCEA Canada’s 2014 “Last Blast” event at the Simcoe County Museum near Barrie, Ontario.

The Canopy was off, so you cold see a lot more then usual when you see a steam shovel operating. I tried to get both sides and zoom in on the controls and mechanics to give a better idea of how it works.

HCEA Canada has regular events if you’d like to see this and other machines in action: Two at The Simcoe County Museum are on their site, and, while they have a presence at many steam shows, I believe they have a larger presence at the Blyth Steam Show.
