El Dorado Western machine shop

"While El Dorado County residents wait to see if the anticipation from area storms is as big as their bite, among the most serious of hazards has been fallen trees," said the online version of the Mountain Democrat

The machine shop of the El Dorado Western Railway was struck by the same "40-plus mph winds" that toppled a dozen trees into county roads yesterday. The winds tore a piece of rusted corrugated roofing off the shop and dampened one of the milling machines.

The picture is a rare view of the shop from the hole in the roof. The horizontal boring machine is located in the bottom half of the picture.
