I don't know if anthracite was found along the MP, but I've
seen photos of lots of MP coal hoppers in the Santa Fe yard
in San Bernadino, California. I guess this coal came from
Missouri or Illinois.
In the '50s coal for the Kaiser steel mill at Fontana came across Cajon Pass in MoPac hoppers, though I don't know where it came from. The Kaiser mill was the only So. Calif. recipient of coal in significant amounts.
