Roger, good use of your drone to give us all a look at the coal trippel.  Nice views of the  OY Rotory Snowplow as well.

Coal was dumped from drop bottom gondolas into pit under track between tower and tender at the left. A skip hoist lifted large buckets of coal from pit to dump them into bunker. The structure at top of hoist simply housed pulleys for the hoist.

Shed under the tower housed hoisting engines. A sand drying apparatus, and tower and storage bin is immediately to right of coal tower.

-LD.

A couple of shots of the seldom seen "swamp" at minute 0:41 to 1:00. Some spare parts stored there, the Friends have a canopy structure there for covered work on cars, and for other equipment it's just an old "boneyard."

I have done the swamp for the friends a couple of times.
