Those are great pics. Thanks for posting them. I never thought to take any pics after all the years I did business there. Wonderful reminder of a bygone era when coal was in great demand.
They are putting in a new road that used to be where the R/R tracks were, that runs in back of the towers. It goes well beyond his property but to far to see where it goes at a glance.

Great pictures!

I wonder how much he sold the property for?

Too bad, we could have held the next meet and greet at his place!

Awesome pictures, sad another era is gone.

Although not in the NL area but not that long of a trip up 95 to Rhode Island has Cranston Coal which still sells Loose.

I buy bulk from Andross Hardware in Charlestown, RI. They have loose and bagged. I get it delivered for $40 and pick up with my truck too.
