Hi Bob and List Members,
 
Given how big the coal chunks are, they might have trouble passing thru a hopper door, thus the boxcar

Assuming the description is correct, I guess if you don’t have a coal dock and you only need a small amount of coal you ask for a boxcar instead of a hopper.

Those sure look like large chunks of coal, though.
