Chuck says: This photo was taken on a recent trip to Marietta, Ohio. It is the World’s Largest Coal Shovel Bucket from “The Big Muskie” (a dragline excavator for coal mining)

wendyvee says: You simply have to check out the links that I posted below the picture. They provide some amazing facts and statistics about “The Big Muskie”!  How about this stunner: The Big Muskie removed over 608,000,000 cubic yards of overburden, which is twice as much earth as was moved during the construction of the Panama Canal!
