    I used pieces of old black roofing for coal once. Got to be carefull what you use though, some stuff starts to grow fungi.

    So, what would you call a train load of oversized mushrooms? The Fungi Limited?

    Oh no, there is fungus among us [​IMG]

    Sorry

    The only real coal i find is pretty hard, i don't know if i could make loads out of it... Do you crush it with a hammer or what?

    Tunnel, if your wife has a mortar and pestile, grind it up in that, and do it slowly so you don't get a lot of dust. In fact spray it occasionally with a little water.

    A hammer with the coal in a sock works well too.

    ------------------
    When in doubt, empty your magazine.

    My wife?!?! That's the first time anyone has ever assumed i was married! [​IMG] I'm only 21!

    I think i'll try crushing the coal and see how it looks. I don't have any plans to build any coal loads in the near future though...

    I have began to make coal loads out of the woodland scenics coal. The Roofing tile was starting to get messy.
