Here is one of the last mine to power plant heavy haul private railroads remaining. The others are Deseret Power Railway and Navajo Mines. This is the Texas edition, from the lignite mine loader in Kosse Tx. It takes a little over an hour to load the empty. It will run push – pull with an interesting homemade control car on the end.
