This geocache is located on a piece of equipment from the Davenport Coal Mine just north of the city. The equipment is placed on an abandoned rail line. The mine was an important industry to that little town so its great they were able to bring it into town for people to see.
My father would go to the mine and get coal for our home in Elgin. Unloading the coal was not something my brothers enjoyed doing.
You will need a permanent marker/finepoint to sign this log.
You DO NOT need to climb on the machine.
Jerome Roehrich the mayor of the city has given me permission to hide this geocache.
