I fly right through the exhaust plume of the Bow Power Plant every time I fly the ILS approach to Runway 35 at Concord, NH. Some days, I can feel the airplane balloon upward just a bit as it charges through the rising column of hot air from the stack. Years ago, when I was flying a Lake Amphibian, I managed to retain my water currency right through the winter, because the heated water from the plant actually kept the adjacent Merrimack River from freezing. It is interesting to see where the coal in the massive pile at that place comes from.

That third unit is an Alco: note the notched corners and somewhat visible AAR Type B trucks. It's good to know a few were still in service nearly 20 years after Alco left the market. Thanks for posting a great picture!

As is the fourth unit. Round fuel tank is a dead give-away for later Alcos. Ironically, it's the GP38s that are smoking it up.
