Still lots of culm piles. There was a open vein right to the surface in Taylor. Some of the railroad tracks were underfilled with rice throwaway coal. They dug a lot of that out and sold it 25 years ago. I can remember a lot of small streams that were orange, the only thing alive were crayfish. Wonder if they ever got that all cleaned up.

Thanks for the picture. Brings back memories of going "up the Eynon" and passing all the coal activity going on
