Two men wearing mining helmets on small railroad cars digging coal mines. A mining machine undercuts large faces of coal. Then a large scoop is dragged across the path of the machine and scoops the gathered coal into Tipple cars. The cars move on the railroad tracks and exit the mine, headed toward the valley. Views of the track running into the valley and the mountains surrounding.
Coal loaded tipple cars move out from a mine, stop for weighing at a weigh station on the tracks, and then move into the tipple, where the coal is separated into 3 different sizes of coal. Each size is dumped into Ford gondolas, and then moved by train toward a Ford plant in Toledo, Ohio. Men standing near the conveyor belt empty and dump the coal loads on the conveyor belt.
