Those are great pics. Thanks for posting them. I never thought to take any pics after all the years I did business there. Wonderful reminder of a bygone era when coal was in great demand.
They are putting in a new road that used to be where the R/R tracks were, that runs in back of the towers. It goes well beyond his property but to far to see where it goes at a glance.

Great pictures!

I wonder how much he sold the property for?

Too bad, we could have held the next meet and greet at his place!
