I've been saying it was gonna come back! It's had it's ups and downs but if you talk to just about any body in the business there all saying this time it's going to be a long term deal :D The past two years it has been getting better now in the past 6 months it's just gone crazy and it's not even the heating season yet, wait untill people pay 1000.00 a month for oil when there neighbor is paying 170.00 a month for anthracite 8) 8)

Well every morning when I go into work there is a line of trucks waiting to go across the scale on one side of me and a string of coal cars on the other side on the Readings tracks waiting to get loaded, D11's running around, 992's on there way down the haul road, the 8700 doing it's thing, hearing Jeddo 8 AND the Hazleton Shaft breaker going at the same time..................What red blooded anthracite region american wouldn't get excited !
