Weed grown tracks lead up to the coalloader. An very old tank car lies here just over the bank still on its frame. It is unaware how old the this car is, it may be very old and be an original GC&C car.

A view of the current coalloader in 2005. This loader is to be replaced with a brand new unit.

West of the coalloader are 3 storage tracks. The GC&C Mainline also once ran here as it headed for Lonaconing.
