Great coal data, Tim!

Why was so little anthracite used in the midwest, compared
to NY/NJ/PA? I thought that people really liked burning that
sort of coal in their furnaces. Were there sources of anthracite
closer to OH/IN/IL/MI etc or did the people there just burn
regular bituminous (or low sulfur bituminous) at home? Was
it so expensive to ship anthracite by rail from PA to Ohio?
Je ne sais pas.
