A great diagram of a typical land drilling rig. Notice the Topdrive on this rig. For those of you who are just learning about drilling rigs, this is normally the best clue you can get that will tell you whether its a newer rig or not. Older drilling rigs will use a rotary table and Kelly to drill/ turn the drillpipe.
