I never saw that one.
Did you see the one I took at Pioneer?

Just some history of the bootleggers from the train tour.

I've got mixed feeling about that one. Paints more of a negative picture on coal than positive. It sounds like the guys filming it didn't get the footage they wanted.

"Paints more of a negative picture on coal than positive"

i think that was the point of the video....... but the people in the video probably, more than likely not told that!

The creator / author of the video had the intension of going against coal because they believe in "Global Warming", but everyone they interviewed put a pretty positive spin on coal. So it was kind of mixed up and not well done for the point they were trying to get across.

Perhaps one my next projects shall be making my own video in favor of our Anthracite miners, since "Hard Coal" doesn't seem like it's ever going to be released.

Anyway, here's my little contribution to anthracite history:

I didn't think my camera would take descent video in the mine.
That's what I need you for, to program the thing for me.
;)

Thanks for entertaining me tonight while my truck is broke down.
