In the US that would be a 4-years of college, Majoring in Engineering. Bella will have specific answers he is not far from finishing his degree.

Is the Colorado School of Mines still the best place to go? I heard that they have produced some of the best mining engineers in history, from around the globe. I think that Pres. Hoover was a graduate, but don't quote me. (I had to do a school project on him.)

Watch this Owen1111 guy Doug. Poor English, especially in the other threads, and join date was today. The spam is getting really, really good. I noticed you caught that "French" one. Not sure how it works or why they're here. But see if you could look into it, I smell a data miner not a coal miner.

YAY! Your Back! I missed your trolling. BTW, I have finished the decals, and am waiting to put them on a car that I am currently detailing.

John,

It's possible, but he hasn't raised any of the usual flags.

Sweet Dave! Ya Doug, just some of his other posts don't jive with someone who has spoken English all their lives, from England. Not sure but it could be a live person setting stuff in the forum to collect personal data from users.

The car is an old brass USRA 55 ton coal hopper. I got it for a bargain, at $40. The guy who was selling it was moving to a smaller house, so he had to get rid of some of his stuff. I've still got to paint it, because right now, I am waiting on some parts, like brake wheels, grab irons, etc. The thing even has individually sprung trucks, with metal springs!

On another note, what about my comment about CSM?

No one has any input. Simple. I suspect they are more hard rock mining than coal, but that is just a guess.
