Upstream Cableway Winch

This cableway winch, which was used to install and remove the ball plugs, trash racks, and the bulkhead gate for the left abutment outlet works, dates to the construction of the Shoshone Powerplant in 1922. It was oriiginally housed in a hoist building on the north side of the Shoshone River Canyon about 75 feet upstream of the dam. The winch was manufactured by American Hoist & Derrick Company of St. Paul, Minnesota, and powered by a Westinghouse electric 7.5 horsepower motor. This cableway winch was last used to aid divers using under water cameras in the inspection of the upstream dam face, trash racks and submerged debris prior to the Buffalo Bill Dam modification project. The winch was removed in 1985 and the hoist building was removed in 1986.
