Thanksgiving weekend I was able to attend the Saturday show and take in the Raritan Valley Hi-Railers awesome coal buildings on their modular layout. I had seen some pictures on their FB page and couldn't remember seeing it for the August show(I must have been distracted looking at something). Seeing all this made me think of other coal options that there is. I saw some interesting information on different methods of getting coal to the rails here, http://appalachianrailroadmode...bcs-of-coal-loaders/ All very interesting. Here are the pics.
All this just gets me thinking about how much coal I have in my coal hoppers and what I should be doing with it.
