About: Dumping Trains & Loading Ships
I find these massive industrial machines - TERRIFYING - I WOULD NOT WANT TO BE ON THE GROUND NEAR THEM AS THEY OPERATE.
What great lake is this ?
Filthy... But I love machines.....

My dad worked here 30 plus years 1977 on.Longshorman union for 40 plus years. Best place he said he worked at. Misses it still. Thanks for sharing this. He will love seeing this footage!
Not unlike Hay Point near Mackay on Queensland's coast.
That is so HEAVY DUTY I love it
Why do they unload like that? You'd think it'd be more efficient to have a grate in the floor like some CSX coal lines in the US
Olivia Newton-John must be doing well to have her own ship!! 😂
Believe me, ANY work around coal is dirty, gritty, grimy and gets everywhere. Literally.
i bet hes making great money for such a monotous job..
I still think giant hands are a quicker method of loading and unloading.
What Year & Where was Video Taken
how much capacity are all coal-terminal area? million tons or more?
Powder River coal?
So that's how the new coalporter coal hoppers empty... Great video!
I just gotta ask, where is this port ?
I amm surprised that those two guys don't have dust masks on with that coal dust floating around
Could you please post a video of the train car couplers when the car tips over for emptying? I see the air hose stays attached with enough length to rotate around, just trying to see how the coupler works when rotating around. I always thought they were fixed in place...
very slow and old fashioned way of doing it .were tipping gondolas like that 40 years ago .plus coal by its very nature can never be CLEAN and PRODUCTIVE we have used it for the past 100 years because its cheap and plenty of it
