Description This coal bunker served a small mine just above the tram track near the new Company Store. Here the coal was stored to be loaded by chute onto the small orecars which ran on the tramway. This is one of the smaller cars which had to be piled up high to make it hold 1,600 lbs. Theo Brockman and George Reeb had driven the tunnel for this mine. Bob Murray is here pictured with his hands on the chute.
