The theme for the May Gallery is 'everything coal'. Coal mines and their signature structures (Breakers, Loaders, etc.); Railroad Coaling Towers; and Coal Dealers both large and small.

This theme should be broad enough to generate a lot of photos, so post away!

This small coal dealership is on Sandy Nelson's HO Scale C&O Railroad. A clam shell loader is the means of unloading the coal from the hopper cars.

"Fine Scale Miniatures" last kit was based on a coal dealer. "The I.M.DUNN Co."




Here's a link to my construction thread of this kit.

This open pit mine was done in 2014. After looking at it for a bit it didn't look right so I tore it down...

Here is another of Dick Elwell's Coal Companies. I guess he liked coal dealers.

FSM Jacobs Fuel, slightly bashed, with added small ice house and lumber yard. Small coal dealers often sold ice and/or lumber. Final work on this once I get it planted on the layout.
