Ray's Hobbies

Ray's main hobby is "Old Iron"! When he is not working his excavating business, he is out searching the state for old iron.
His many treks have taken him to Brownsville, PA for the National Pike Steam, Gas and Horse Association's yearly show. Check out their website at NPSGHA.
Another favorite is the Historical Construction Equipment Association show at Bowling Green, Ohio. Their website is HCEA.
The Harrison Coal and Reclamation Historical Park spent considerable time working to acquire The Silver Spade. Although their efforts were in vain, they did receive the cab and other parts from The Spade. The Harrison Coal Park already has some old iron on their site in southeastern Ohio on State Rt 519, between New Athens and State Route 22. Check out their website at HCRHP.
Ray also helped take apart a Marion 7200 dragline which has been moved to their site. For more pictures of the Marion 7200, check out this website: Miller's Pictures of the Marion 7200.
