That's a cool view of the coal dock too! I've been looking for a coal dock for quite some time. They are common up north and east of the Mississippi, but seems like they're hard to find westward. I don't know why that is. These were used to load coal into locomotives until around 1940. After that time, most train engines were diesel. Very cool to see this!
