Re: Loading Char Coal in Alabama

Ashland Coal & Iron (later C&O) railroad had similar (but standard between the rails drop-doors) coke hopper cars -- hopper cars with rack extensions.  These Southern cars had side-dump doors. They would work equally well for low density coke or charcoal.

Was there a charcoal plant at Randolph Ala?

That is an interesting Southern hopper car.

If Randolph was near
Birmingham, I might guess coke.  But Randolph is quite
east,not industrial, and the photo label
says charcoal. I see no reason to second guessthe label. Chuck Peck in
