This paper has sought in general terms to outline the operation and benefits which can be achieved by automating a coal loading station and in particular a flask or mass type system. The principles are novel although they have all been tried out in one station or another in coal or other products. The methods have been described for coal railway load out stations only because the justification appears greatest in this application but the systems can clearly be employed in stations handling other products and in other plants (such as ship loading) in which similar problems arise.
