The Ore Yard

This was the original crane. Note the different design of legs, supporting the main structure.

The ore stockyard and ore bridge crane.

Ores of different compositions and origin were stocked in the yard and blended according to requirements.

An electric ore car transported ore to the blast furnace bunkers and conveyors carried ore to the Sinter Plant. The bridge did not long-travel when the grab was full. This crane was replaced sometime in the 1960s.

The crane driver's cab is visible just above and to the left of the grab.
