Problems arise from many variable factors encountered in moving coal from the province of Alberta through terminals to shipboard in Vancouver. These variables encompass such matters as effect of car design, other problems faced by the railroads, difficulties at the mine loading point, and pass-on problems inherited by the terminal in dealing with the variable nature of the product caused by climatic changes from the interior to the west coast of Canada. Differences in product moisture content and related matters are also discussed, as are the effect of snow and ice.
