To keep you busy.
 
There is a wealth of photo's & plans (100+) for the Kennecott Mine,
on the "Historical American Building Survey" site,
enter Kennecott Mine Alaska in the search.

The first site which comes up has 8 pages of photo's and plans,
for both the powerhouse and mill,
lots of interior and exterior photos and plans of both.

The plans for the boiler's show they are considered to be O type water tube,
they were coal fired, operated a few of this style, along with A's and D's in my time,
although not coal fired.

The power plant, restored by the NPS, is a massive! structure,
the Berlin Boiler House would not do the mill justice!, way to small.

This should keep you busy for a while, just going through the information.
