About: Creepy Coal Mining Town I: Abandoned West Virginia
The video would be much more informative if the narrator knew what he was talking about. Poor camera work, too much panning and zooming does not help. And we don't really want to see the kiddie's face all the time. Looks like a very interesting site, maybe you should hire a real miner to explain what is we are looking at. Typical college kiddie, probably majoring in sociology and communications. Look at a site map, figure out what machinery did what, hire REAL miners for explanations (maybe a fire boss or tipple operator) and try, try, again! We have a nearby mine site (close to Pittsburgh, PA) that you can tour, with the benefit of real experts, AND an underground ride on an electric mine train!
So many people out west who have never been able to travel back east, that would love a decent half hour documentary on these abandoned mining towns. Ten minutes just isn't enough time to even tell the history of said towns. It would be great if you were to keep the camera steady and walk the entire town, keep your uninterested friends out of it and then go back, do some editing, after you learn as much as possible about your subject, write a script, then add music, a scripted voice over and then you can claim fame for doing something that you could be proud of, plus learning more about the country than you ever imagined possible.
A win, win situation.
Hmnnn' building with the iron door was the powder magazine"probably was abandoned when good long wall mining equip. came along.Don't be tempted to go under ground,for obvious reasons.grumpy old geezer.Spent several years around mining both surface and underground as a consultant,just mind your manners around abandoned mines of any kind.
A bit of advice, slow the camera motion down, you’re making people nauseous.
Your videos would be Much Better If you Kept the other People with you Out of the videos..
the stone building he showed was a bath house and little was a lamp house i use to up the hill from that mine and my granfather was a minner
the waters green because of algea what a bunch of ijuts.
not caved in, filled in..
It's only creepy because of the music...
View in support! Hope you’ll stop by!
Great vid. Very interesting. Thanks from Massachusetts.
that was a powder magazine not an oven and probably a blasting cap magazine judgeing from the size
The green stuff where the water is dripping is algae/moss.
It didn't claps when they block off a abandoned Cole mine they shove rock as far back as they can then but the bars up to seal off
Creepy ??????? Something that could kill you ????????
Its a state park…….There were other visitors there ??????
The idea for this video is great, but you should have been more prepared for it not knowing what is what. And you need to be less jerky with the camera moving it around so fast. It makes your viewers get seasick. And it not an abandoned town, its an abandoned work-site.
"This waters green, I'm sure that is some kind of chemical or... it doesn't seem safe!" same people that say, "Oh, the God, theres a UFO!, must be an alien life-form!"
3 mins in. And it’s all I can take. The camera man is horrible. Dislikedand reported. Hopefully this channel doesn’t show up in my feed again.
I’m from this area. It’s obvious you didn’t do your homework and have no clue what you are doing.
You forgot to add the music dueling banjos🤠🎻🎶
