Description Newton Mine Bunker, under construction - The plan for the Newton Mine Bunker on the crest of the hill at Beatie Gulch shows it to be on exactly the same plan as that of the Foster, except that the framework under the tunnel is of sawed lumber. From tram line operated by gravity, the full buckets pulling up the empties up. They were dumped automatically without stopping, although it was possible to stop the line if there was trouble. From the bunker, coal was loaded from the bottom into the buckets for the trip to Electric by electric power.
