Coal Dust - the old NYC Collinwood coal dock bites it!  I don't know when this happened but Wayne sent along a great set of pictures taken at the old NYC maintenance facility at Collinwood Yards between East 146th and East 152nd Streets in Cleveland when the coaling tower bit the dust. The yard was started in 1903 and the tipple ca. 1944.  It was gone by 1984.  Here it was in its heyday and then gradually disappearing:

[Thumbnailed image - click on picture for larger image]

At its maximum extent, it spanned eight (8) tracks, with four (4) loading chute tracks and two (2) dump tracks:

It appeared at first glance that no trace of the tipple was left but looking very carefully at a satellite view reveals what almost certainly are eight of the footings:

To make them more obvious, I popped them in RED:

Sic transit gloria mundi!
