The mining cart is waiting to be loaded with ore to take to the surface. The electric cart will follow a conduit back to the surface. this conduit is also the facility's lifeline, allowing smoother crew rotations and longer time spent underwater.
A glimpse of the bottom level of the facility, where ore is normally stored until it is loaded onto the mine cart. The spring-loaded plunger at the end of the track absorbs impact energy in case of a free-falling mine cart through the conduit.
