Re: Shipping Coal - How Far?


Years ago I was doing research on car shipments on the Yakima Valley Transportation Co. in Yakima, WA during the 1950's. On the railroad were many small coal yards for providing heating coal for houses. Most all of the coal came out of Utah, Montana, and Wyoming and was mostly delivered in drop bottom gondolas, not hoppers.
