  1. Unreal. I can only imagine this was a much older design for a coal chute as opposed to the type with an pit/auger and elevator like structure (ie: like Grain but for Coal)

  2. Besides the roundhouse/turntable, this is the structure that always stood out for me, as a young lad standing on the bluff at Dundurn Castle.

  3. Doug–thank you for sharing all these great pictures from Stuart St.Hamilton
