The coal comes into the shed on conveyors from an "off scene" mine Bob.  The mine could be either adjacent to ther coal shed or some distance away.  I've seen conveyors bringing coal (or other minerals) several hundred metres or more.  There are "screens" inside that grade the coal into different sizes after which it is deposited in bins (again via conveyors) above the tracks.

The wagons are shunted under the shed - each track or position along the track, places the wagon under a chute from one of the bins.  Which one, dictates what grade of coal will be dropped into the wagon.  Imagine a large petrol station with banks of pumps serving different grades of fuel but in 3D.  The fuel you get, depends on where you stop your vehicle.

As you can imagine, they were very, very dirty places - usually covered in something resembling black talcum powder and the tracks were similarly coated.

Peter, I have just spent a pleasant half hour with a cup of coffee drooling over this great set of pictures. There are so many inspirational ideas. I like the different approaches, some go for the busy look with masses of detail, while others portray space and tranquility. The layout that really caught my eye was Highbury Colliery, as it really looks natural and set into the countryside. Thanks for taking the trouble to post all of these.
Bob
