    Don't really know who the fireman(stoker) pictured is.
    Our brakeman was tall.
    Me thinks that tall men may have had a hard time shoveling that much coal.
    Wiry stocky men were better suited I think.



    Around 1900 large steam locomotives reached the limit that a fireman could fire by hand.

    This was somewhere around 5,000 pounds of coal per hour.
    =========================================
    A mechanical substitute for the fireman and shovel had to be found.

    The successful design for a mechanical stoker that emerged was an augur screw that lay in a trough at the bottom of the tender that brought coal through a tube to the firebox and up into a funnel-shaped container where jests of steam were used to disperse the coal throughout the firebox.

    The brakeman is a real artist.

    Lot of coal being shoveled here.



    Do I hear music in the steam whistle?
    Or is it caterwauling?

    The Elk River Touring Center used to host the WV Mtn Bike Festival, one of the rides was from Slatyfork along the Greenbriar River to Cass. Then board the train with the bikes and then bomb down from Bald Knob and back to the Center. One of the years I was a volunteer guide, a couple of us rode up to Bald Knob instead of taking the train. We beat the train to the top :lol3

    Which gives you an idea how slow it does go.

    Growing up in PA, where all our liquor stores are state run and wholes on a wall, this place makes me a little hard.

    And I hate it every time I work there. I've been bringing beer from home because it's easier than finding a distributor.

    Everybody has been getting excited that they are finally rescinding these asinine laws. The newly built Sheetz down the road is ready with the walk in "soda cave".

    I hope they realize that most townships around here are still dry around here and its going to be a PITA to get it changed. The local supermarket(Weis) just tried and lost out.

    I rode from Charlotte to Vermont in like 99 and it was my first time stopping in PA. I set up camp and went to find steaks for the grill and beers. Nobody told me about the tavern thing, I just knew I had to buy a case. So I got a case of 8 oz bud cans. Psshht! Glub! Psshht!
