Thanks for the quick reply and starting my question in a new thread. I'm sorry, I did get off topic in that other post....Newbie mistake, I promise it won't happen again.
Now, in regards to your reply....it makes perfect sense (Duh, thats why I did not think of it) to just have the coal sectioned off in different compartments. Do you have one of those "scissor" type trucks (not sure of the actual name) that raise up high so the coal can be slid down and into tight spots or coal shoots?
I remember seeing those type of trucks when I was a little kid in NYC in the 60's I would always stop and watch. I remember the driver had a helper that would always make sure the truck did not raise up into telephone and electric wires....The helper always did all of the shoveling as I remember too.
