Before we lost our internet on saturday, i was going to describe my job as a trackman underground. HomeStake Ming Co. was the largest in the western hemisphere. We mined for gold and my job was to maintain the many many miles of track. The gauge for the track was 18" gauge. We had 6 ton electric motors and pulled up to 20 ore cars. They even had trolley motors with the real electric wires overhead. Every level was spaced 150 ft. apart. I've work from the surface to the 8000 ft. level. They lowered 30 ft. sections of rail down the shaft and we pulled them out to the level and loaded them on little trucks. The first thing before working on the track would be to clean the mud and lower the water level. I'll say more but this is maybe too long. I loved it and loved my job.
