Here are more pictures of that Anthracite Mine Tunnel in the Northern Field, PA

Image
Looking inside of the Mule Barn. The old Mule stables are still left pretty much intact. An old MSA ComfoCap is seen on a prop.


Image
Another view of the stables.


Image
On the other side of the Mule stables.


Image
Looking back at the Mule stables from far back, Miner Lina and UGM Banks can be seen.


Image
Old cabinets inside of the mule barn. Perhaps they were used to store mule shoes or tools when the mine was in operation.


Image
UGM Banks inside of the workings near the mule barn.


Image
The main rock tunnel for this mine.


Image
Further along in the rock tunnel.


Image
Mine researchers looking beyond an old brattice wall.


Image
After traveling in the rock tunnel, you intersect the vein of coal. Miner Mike standing in the rock tunnel while UGM Banks is crawling in the workings above. Notice the height of this seam of coal.

Intersecting the next vein of coal along the rock tunnel.

Along a gangway of this mine, Mine Researchers are seen climbing up the chute to an old brattice wall.
