Quinnimont Truck Mine Tipple Drawings 1949
The small truck mine tipple located at Quinnimont, W. Va. in 1947. Truck mine tipples loaded coal brought to them from small mines that had no railroad access. They were simple platforms that allowed the trucks to dump their coal directly into railroad cars. The small tipple had no preparation functions, but mine very nicely fit on a small model layout. NOTE: The late Russ Hass made a series of mechanical drawings depicting this tipple is great detail.
