Mine Cars

We currently have three mine cars in our collection. Innumerable hours went into the restoration of these cars in which only the metal pieces remained. Unfortunately, many years of outdoor storage has led to the wood needing replacement. The cars are currently disassembled and indoors, on our list to re-complete after the mine locomotives.

3-Ton Steel Coal Car and Stake Side Flat Car

These cars were saved days before scrap from Baumann’s Scrap Yard in Mayfield. They were originally used in the Carbondale area, but we are not certain of the specific operation.

UGM Mine Car

This car was built using design features from Glen Alden, Hudson, and the Pennsylvania Coal Co. The only original parts are the wheels, bumpers, draw bar and dump door mechanism – everything else was constructed ourselves including the axles.
