1894 "Old Dinah" steam tractor and ore wagons. Borax Museum at Furnace Creek Ranch, Death Valley NP, California, USA.
The 1894 "Old Dinah" steam tractor and ore wagons replaced the 20 mule teams at Old Borate (but were in turn replaced by the Borate and Daggett Railroad). See historical mining and transportation equipment at the Borax Museum at Furnace Creek Ranch, in Death Valley National Park, California, USA. The oldest house in Death Valley was built in 1883 by F.M. "Borax" Smith in Twenty Mule Team Canyon, then moved here by his Pacific Coast Borax Company in 1954 to serve as a museum.Add to Lightbox Download
