Harry,Mine tags didn't mean much to me back then. I may have only read one once. But, the best that I remember, I do think that they were made of a pretty sturdy paper and lasted till pulled off.Jimmy LisleSent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

Waybills, swaybills !  What I'm interested in is mine tags.  You've

probably seen them -- looks like a post card stapled to a wood plank

on the side of a hopper.  What information was on the mine tag ? I

never looked.

Did a coal load move from mine to Lamberts Point without a waybill, but

on a mine tag ?

Did the mine tag survive in rotten weather or did it disintegrate ?
