I google a map looks like 40 meter would be the real distance where we were shooting .

I also found out they remover the train tracks and made the Perkiomen trail walk . I walked up and down the train tracks and fill my Red Wagon with coal that fell off the coal mine trains going to Philly and sold it for BB and candy money .

I remember coal furnaces. I was born in NE Pennsylvania and back in the 50s when I was little, everyone had a coal furnace.

My first job at the age of 15 included shoveling coal into the hopper in the winter. I also learned how to clean out the clinkers.

I had my own business at age 8 . I had a cabinet shop down the end of my street and all saw dust and wood chips was in a big pile outside or under there saws and planers I would fill the farmers feed bags up for a nickle a bag and haul them home in my little red wagon and they would come pick them . I got it free from the cabinet shop so I had a low overhead .

When we had our first house it had fireplaces up stairs and down. They were just a slight cut above useless so I put a wood stove in the downstairs one and put a register to the second floor. Got sick of hauling the wood and having to build a fire when I got home from work so got a coal/wood combo stove and that heated the home for the winter. Put a coal bin in the garage that would hold a ton of stove coal. Shake it down in the morning and fill it up and then do he same when I got home from work. Empty the ash pan every other day. Used to burn about 2 ton a year so it was cheap heat and the house was warm both downstairs and up.
