Old time photo

Here’s a rare scene of a Huntingdon and Broad Top Mountain Railroad coal hopper resting in front of a mine tipple in Broad Top Township, Bedford County. Dozens of large and small deep mines operated along the Six Mile Run and Shreeves Run railroad branches during the hey day of King Coal. The exact date of the photo is unknown.
