Historical Society of Schuylkill County Coal Tour

On Saturday October 24, 2009 the Historical Society of Schuylkill County sponsored a coal mining regional tour. The sites included the Reading Company's Wadesville Stripping Pit, A tour through Irish Valley, The Pioneer Tunnel, Sorry no pictures for the tunnel. I was giving the tour there and forgot to get the camera out! A fabulous look inside the Girard Breaker, and the SER Cogeneration Plant. All in all it was a great tour to sites you don't normally get to see. Working the Mammoth Vein at the Wadesville Strippings
