Mine No. 2 Jobs, Ohio

LC-PH-1111
The mine operated untill 1940.  It was a slope mine – there were two mines (NO 1 and No 2) served by one tipple.  They used horses to  pull mine cars out of the mine and perform other haulage chores.  The stable for these horses could accomadate 125 horses.  The hill along the track, with the RR cars at the base is a pile of slack coal. Jobs, Hocking County
