Remarks & Notes 
To the Tipple!

An empty local coal train, with 4 80MACs (2 on each end) eases through Windber, PA enroute to the tipple at Mine 78 about a mile outside town. While today this track is called the Windber Industrial and only serves mine 78, at one time this would have been a busy line shuttling coal and empties in and out of Berwind-White's numerous mines in the area.

The PRR station structure (center) now houses the borough offices, and the former post office (left) was, for a time, a coal mining museum. Windber was, and is, a coal mining town to the core--reverse the syllables if you need proof.
