The one coal train that goes east out of Coal Valley is this one (Actually returning empty here). It ran to Thunder Bay, where I presume the coal was transloaded to Lakers and then to Ontario Hydro coal-fueled generating plants.
The train is very likely travelling over a bed or two of coal that is strip mined just a few hundred meters beyond the train. The quality of this local coal pales in comparison to the material that the train transports.
