    I need a coal mine for HO scale. It will be whatever type of coal is burned in a power plant. Please help.

    Ditto... I'll take one/suggestions as well. Anything but "The old Coal Mine" kit that's been marketed by Model Power and at least 2-3 other brand names over the years.

    Alpine has a couple of different mine types. They are western prototypes, but you will find underground mines in the east. Walthers has several mines, including a flood loader.

    steam coal as it is called can come from any mine if you are doing western coal then a flood loader is in order walthers makes one.

    I really like Walthers New River Mine, I am just trying to figure out if I want stub end tracks, or the capability to pull straight through.

    Here is a link to another forum, it has some pictures and some information that might be helpful in picking out the mine you want.;f=9;t=002599;p=1

    Here is another link. I was very impressed with this guys work! Browse through his album, and check out his Blue Ridge Mine. It is incredible!

    Hope this helps,
