Where do the cinders/ashes go? Where does the coal come from?

  • If you were attempting to operate a steam railroad and had locomotive service facilities you would have a coaling station and ash dump.  From what I understand the ashes are loaded into a gondola and hauled where??  Also the coaling station would get loads of coal from where?  Directly from the mine or is there a a distributor that the railroad buys from?
