What mine were the photos of the goodmen deseal hual locomotives on the ohio vintage coal website taken at?

Since this picture was taken the locomotives have been pulled out of service and the mine set to idled state

What dose idled state mean, that it may reopen?

yeah, idled state means its shut down for now, but may be re-opened in the future. The permits for the mine are still good. They do that so they can shut a mine down and not have to reclaim it, in case they want to go back in in the future. If you completely shut it down it must be reclaimed.
