TRANSPORT PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED AND SOLVED AT THE SOUTH EAST COAL COMPANY

A report is presented on transport problems encountered and solved at the South East Coal Company. Because of a shortage of railroad cars at L and N, the company purchased cars which were inoperable and repaired them and put them into service using the L and N Railroad. With the improved car supply (700 cars in 3 years), production increased from 954,166 tons in 1975 to 1,544,008 tons in 1978. Inequities encountered with L and N are described.
