  • Manufacturing -and- shipping large transformers: GE

    This site has a lot of pictures of buildings, equipment, transformers (all bigger than a bread box), power line equipment and science:

    GE's Pittsfield, MA plant was large, downtown heavy industry and as the product got larger and heavier, owned both depressed center flats and Schnabel cars.

    Wow, great site James'.. reminds me of the street in Bridgeport, CT years ago. 10 buildings of 5 stories in a row. Each one manufactured a different appliance, from radios to washers, dryers, fans. everything for the homeowner. All gone now except the buildings which are empty...

        An interesting site, James. I will devote more time to it this afternoon with my tablet in one hand and an adult beverage in the other.
