Possibly powdered limestone, which I understand is spread to keep down coal dust.? Fuel for any pumps, generators, etc. not powered by coal or off the local electrical grid.

What would normally be likely inbound supplies delivered by rail in carload lots for coal mining,
specifically in the eastern part of the US? Mine props, of course. And what else? Would they get
loads of dynamite, or black powder? What else might be likely?
