The Model Railroader's Guide To Coal Railroading by Tony Koester

96 pages, more than 230 photos & diagrams

The rail and coal industries practically grew up together, and they're still vitally important to each other. Mines from the Appalachians to the West yield more than a billion tons of coal each year, most of which travels by rail.

The Model Railroader's Guide to Coal Railroading provides a wealth of information for modelers who want to add coal operations to their layouts. This book examines where coalfields are located and how coal is mined. It explains the rail system that has evolved to serve the coal industry. And it's filled with the pictures of coal businesses from generating plants and steel mills to the local coal dealership you can model on your layout.

This book includes information and tips about:

  • underground and surface mines
  • tipples, breakers, and loaders
  • types of coal
  • historic coal-hauling railroads
  • railroad operations and equipment
  • company towns
