There were many miners in the 70s and even up through the 80s and 90s in eastern kentucky who destroyed machinery and shot out truck tires. Would be nice to have some pictures of that.

An autist on facebook has started identifying some of these photos that are unknown with excruciating detail. God bless him.

The quoted post's photo:
>Cumberland-Elkhorn Coal & Coke at Combs, KY on the L&N's EK Subdivision. Location here was called "Lennut" which was just "Tunnel" spelled backwards. The Hazard Tunnel was just to the right in this picture so a pretty accurate assignment. This loadout replaced an older tipple here in 1985. First operations here were by the Daniel Boone Coal Company in 1926 which gave way to several different tipple designs over the years operated by at least 10 different operators. Adams Construction had a second little loadout just out of sight to the left during the 1980's as well but it was just a simple coal chute. Here's a ground level view from the 1990's just before it was removed.

How often do you get to see L&N, C&O, CSX (near the loader), and Seaboard Systems cars all in one train? Really makes you internalize just how quickly CSX gobbled up so many operators in the 80s.
