Re: Auburn coal dock.

This is totally cool.  Unfortunately the Alma branch didn't have a facility like this so I can't build one for my layout.

I've uploaded my photos of the small coal dock that existed at Auburn, Alabama (on the Western Railway of Alabama).  The color shots date from about 1973 (when I started at Auburn), and the b&w about 1976.  The dock shows up on the early Sanborn maps, but was gone by the mid-80s when I returned for a visit.  I only ever caught it being used the one time.
