It has been a long time since we have devoted a Photo Gallery Theme to coal - its transportation, handling, storage, and usage. There has always been a close relationship between the coal industry and the railroad industry. Not only have the railroads moved coal from the mines to the customers, but during the steam era, the railroads were a major end user of coal as well.

If you have pictures of coal mines & tipples, coal dealers or coal bins, railroad coaling towers, coal cars, coal conveyors or coal trucks, this is the time to share them with the rest of the forum.

So post your pictures, either model or prototype. If there is a lump of coal in the photo, it is welcome!

Once again want to caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Neat photo Lou, where did you take that? I love the old shovel.

This is a Branchline Bucket Coaling Station based on an article in the June 1955 Model Railroader magazine.
