COAL SHIPS


When you start reading this article...you may get somewhat turned off due to all the technical info on "coal"....but hang with it...because I believe the reader will be very informed on how the "Coal Ships" came about, as well as their history.

Yes, this is a long article...actually a "Two Part Article" but in my opinion it offers the reader a great deal of information, and if you are looking for family info on someone that worked the ships, barges, coal car ferries.....you may just run across something you can use in your research.

Lots of collier ships included in this article, as well as pics of them...
