      Hi Bob;

       

      I spent a few years in Schuylkill County, PA.  That was the heart of anthracite coal country.  When I was working as a District Scout Executive (BSA) out of the Pottsville office, there was still a wooden breaker (where the coal was sorted by size) in nearby Llewellyn, PA.  That breaker was used in many of the scenes for The Molly McGuires movie.  I believe Sean Connery starred in that movie.

       

      Just a fun fact I thought you would enjoy.

       

      Best, David Meashey

      When the site owner/ Benevolent Dictator posts something about bad ideas I have a feeling it’s a trap and if we look or click on the links we will get booted for trying to see the bad ideas! 
      Being a west coast guy , coal is something we are mostly unfamiliar with, but I think I could modify a mine into something that fits into my layout. Cool!!

      Yep, Ive been there.  That's the Eckley Miner's Village. Its a pretty neat time capsule.  Nearby is an open-pit mine with a few draglines, including the Antracite King.  Fun to watch them work.
