what does a coal mine smell like?
So much left behind!!!! Makes it more interesting!!!! Awesome footage.
Cool video Jp... I love caves but that mine just was way too much for me to wanna climb into lol
Love this video. Can't wait to watch the 2nd and the 3rd. Love the drone footage.
Great find and video.
As a 12 year old kid from NY I had hell of a good time checking out those old mines during the 1959 summer in Kulpmont Pa.
There tons of fossils on those slate hills as I collected what I could carry out.
In Kulpmont Pa.during 1959 less then a quarter mile behind Ash st and behind a kids park there were dozens of open square shaft vents or exits from the mines below.
There were so many open shaft mines your eyes never left the path in fear you might fall in and never be seen again.
During the summer of 1959 at my aunt house in kulpmont Pa there was talk about how hot the basement floor was at the high school at the end of the town from a coal fire also this is just a few miles from Centralia while Shamokin Pa is 2 miles the other direction.
This Mine was DOOMED from the start! As they continued to dig out the hillside the more it became unstable! The whole mine then caved in on it self. The rock formation proves this.
my old stomping grounds
Great video! I am from Shamokin, and as kids, we used to climb the coal hills. My parents would have killed us had they known...lol. The hills had burn pockets where the coal was actually on fire underground. No vegetation grew around those spots, and you could see smoke coming up out of the ground. Coyotes howled in the distance.
Spectacular shots with the drone..beautiful. What could justify leaving all that expensive equipment plus tons of scrap iron ? Makes no sense to me. Another awesome video !
I Can't believe you went in there . Is there a coal miner in your family tree somewhere ? You seem to be a natural . Watching your video is the only way I'll ever see inside a coal mine. Thank you for another adventure JPV.
Hello JP. watching pt, one and two, Was watching pt three earlier. So watching 1 and 2 first, Nice videos as usual,
Think, millions of $$$$$$ spent for all the metals and equipment they could have recycled. Amazing just sitting there wasted.
Another fascinating adventure what I love about it you grant to educate your viewer. I truly enjoy your video I learned so much when you narrates the different parts of the machineries. Thanks again JP.
I've been in there so many times you could go up the steps 7:44
it's really fun playing hide and seek all there a bunch of people hide and two people seek
Btw also the equipment is not abandoned they still use and there is still power In them
Btw it’s all collapsed now
I went there with my dad we found it on accident
