Sloss was a pig iron producing blast furnace that operated from 1882 to 1971. Sloss was among the largest sellers of pig iron in the world. After its closure, the site was opened for public view. Most of the good parts are sealed off from tourist view with gates, locked doors, and even welded shut doors. Honestly, I was disappointed in the amount that they let you see at Sloss. You can't go inside any of the buildings, or climb any of the equipment. Of course, lawsuits drive these rules.
But who follows rules.
We "gained entry" into one of the buildings.
Ingersoll-Rand steam turbine. They seem to be quite common in industrial abandonments.
