there may be another one accross from where the harry e was in swoyersville. It sits up on the bank. I saw it pretty much my whole life. then trees began to grow on the culm bank , and you couldnt see it anymore from the road. about 2 years ago i tried to grt a closer look and it was there then. in the next few weeks ill check into it and let you know.

Also i remembered that my grandfather had a picture of one that fell down a culm bank, or into a stripping hole. this was taken in the early 1940's ill have to locate it and if i can find it ill post it
