Caption: The Scale Car in the Charging Tunnel
Additional Description: After the closing of Sloss Furnaces, most of the tools and equipment at the plant were removed. The water pumps to the charging tunnel were turned off. Over the years the tunnel flooded. Before Sloss Furnaces was opened to the public in the 1980's it was not know of what was still remaining down in the flooded charging tunnel. After the water receded the scale car was discovered covered with fine layer of mud.
