Langdon Coal Elevator
N scale Kit #9215
Based on an
actual prototype. Coal Elevators were usually built in the early
1900's near several grain elevators. Coal was used by every house and
business for heating and cooking before the advent of natural gas furnaces
and stoves. Everyone in town would need to buy coal for to survive.
The coal elevator had the advantage of loading wagons or trucks with 5 to 6
tons of coal through 5 different chutes without shoveling. The
elevator itself was loaded in two ways, through the side doors on the track
side by shoveling coal from box cars equipped with grain doors or
occasionally gondolas or it was equipped with an under-track conveyor system
that could lift the coal to the top of the elevator.
