Hello fellow Marylanders,

[is that a word?]

Frostburg, MD [western MD]. Allegany County, near Garrett/Allegany line. 20 yr old house, one of only two in the neighborhood buring coal. Coal heat is still very common here, but not so much in newer housing developments. I just removed an small [old] Red Square 5 section cast iron boiler and Iron Fireman Stoker. Hand fired for a few years, then installed stoker.

I bought a Keystoker Kaa2. Working on it now, will be learning about burning anthracite during 2010/11 season.

I live in Pylesville ...Northern Harford county.
We have been burning rice coal for seven years or so...
Our boiler identity is kinda coal repair guy thinks it's a Stoker.
The unit looks like something out of a Frankenstein movie, but keeps on heating!
Let's hope we can get at least one more year!!

Welcome to the forum lewg from a fellow MD'er. How about posting a pic of the mystery boiler? I bet somebody here would recognize it and be able to tell you a little about it.
