Hambach Lignite Mine Part 2

Cybrbeast posted the photos of his excursion to the Hambach open pit mine a few days ago, which reminded me that I still haven't posted any photos of my excursion to the same mine, one year ago. So, maybe a bit late, here are some photos from my excursion. The tour-van: Make sure to view this one fullscreen and look for the white car for reference: And this is the precious lignite: A video:

Cool! Better late than never. Great machines. The precious lignite doesn't look all that precious. Did you break anything?

naa I didn't break anything. The only thing that might have been damaged is my back during the bumpy ride :)

I also recorded a video of the bucket wheel. enjoy!

Nice video. Must be quite something to stand so close.
