Coal Mine Wharf By Bill Lesburg
Bill used standard drawings from the Norfolk and Western
Railroad to produce this coal wharf in 1/8th scale.
This is the first in a series of mines we are going to add on this branch of the railroad known as the Coal District.
Bill Lesburg with his N & W style coal mine wharf. This type wharf uses hand pushed carts to bring the coal out of the mine and then turn the carts on the turntable to run them along the whaft to chutes over the waiting coal hoppers. We are going to utilize the water drainage culvert as the mine entrance for this mine by adding track to the end of the culvert.
