Rapido GLa Hopper--Anthracite carloads on Great Northern

gary laakso

The Annual Report for GN in 1939 shows carloads by these groups:

  1. Anthracite       1.055
  2. Bituminous    39,248
  3. Lignite             12,730 and
  4. Coke                  4,561


For a little perspective,  GN move 1,150 carloads of eggs, 1,301 of salt and 537 of wool.  If the GLa hoppers could have moved anthracite, I can buy one.
