Well Packed Lump Coal


Steve Stull
 

Group;

Found this picture at the West Virginia Historical Photographs
Collection. A C&O twin hopper loaded with lump coal, laid in so
cleanly it almost looks like paving stones. Is this typical loading
for this size of coal, or is it so well placed for the sake of the
photographer?

Steve,

Most deffinitely a photo op for the RR. That may be the only neat as a pin photo of a hopper ever produced.

Photo 003499 on the same site shows C&O 56516 again plus two other cars,
staged at the Price Hill Colliery loader, seemingly to showcase the product line:
"Lump", "Egg", and "Stove" coal.

Fred,

I've got to admit, it looked awfully pretty to be a
regular load, that, or they had one seriously complex
loading facility :)

Richard,

I saw that pic, and a couple more, one of each
variety. I'm currently wading through all 21,000 pics
on the site. Some really incredible structures,
trackwork, and cars to be seen there.

Many of the photos don't have a caption, so a search
wont find them.

Same with the American Memory project at the Library
of Congress. I have no idea when I'll be done going
through those.

I tried to copy the URL from the original message into my browser; it
wouldn't all copy, so I had to type in the rest. *Then* I got to see
this amazing coal load (almost looks like the car has a beehive oven
sitting in it).

it's a multi line URL...the ; is NOT the end of it...copy and paste
the line after that which is the rest of the line...yahoo truncated it
due to the punctuation mark in the URL and the excessive line length

I had a similar if not the same problem. It's fairly common with links in the mailing lists also. For me anyhow. You see the posted link, but only part of it looks like a link ( blue print ). The rest of the link doesn't look like part of it ( black print ). When you try and copy and paste the entire link, only the part in blue appears after you paste. That's ok though, just minimize the page you pasted to before hitting ENTER. I then copy and paste ONLY the missing part ( black print ) and add it to the URL in the page I minimized, thus getting the whole web address I'm trying to link to. THEN you hit ENTER to access the desired link.

I do not know how your PCs work with e mail and URLs, But on My MAC when I get an email with a busted URL I hit reply and when that comes up I change the address from who ever to myself.
I then go to the URL and delete the space between the two parts. This makes it one. I send the email. When it comes back to me I click on the URL and it opens Safari and goes to the web page.

In the broad (if occasionally OT) spirit of the Fourth, I'd say you sure got that right, Larry!!

With Eudora on either platform, you can edit any message. So I
correct the URL in the message, save it, and then click. If the
URL is a transient picture (like from Ebay) I copy the picture
(^A^C) and paste it (^V) into the message if I want to remember
it... voila! child's play :-)

At Burlingame, KS, George Fry had a coal business. He received stoker
coal and lump coal. Stoker coal came in hopper cars. Lump coal came
in flat bottom cars. Lump coal wouldn't come out and at some time one
of the workers was injured in the unloading. It was from then on that
Mr. Fry's business only received lump coal in gondolas.
