lumps of coal in some stoves and you have heat for one night easy!

One thing that I do see - if you use the links Tim sent, you get the

scenes, where having to scroll back and forth to trace the routes is half

complexes than on some layouts. And the nice thing is, there is no need to
excuse the use of multi-level tracks!

Being that big, I can't see that it would burn cleanly. Would the coal be
any cheaper in such a large grade to make it cost effective for a client

Obviously this is of direct interest to those of us who will be shipping
