'Shown here are the loading booms in action. Each of the five loading tracks is served by a loading boom, and the loading system is interconnected so as to permit blending of sizes and loading of any size group on any track. The loading booms gently lower the coal into the cars with a minimum of opportunity for dust or degradation. The loading facilities are sufficient to permit the loading of a car every two minutes.
