Hi List Members,
 
Hopper and gons, Monongah No 8 Mine, Fairmont Coal Company, WV 1907
 
Along with the freight cars, we get a spectacular view of a coke oven bank, what is probably the mine tipple and sorting structures in the left background, smokestacks for the mine power plant in the center, and ancillary mine buildings on the left. Note the derelict mine cars at the bottom lst of the image
 
 
This scene would make a great NTRAK module, don't you think?
 
Enjoy!
 
Claus Schlund
