Now and Then, Hanna Coal Offices

As a companion to Wordless Wedneday #96 and inspired by a comment from Jeff S, here's what the Hanna Coal Co's Office & Maintenance complex looks like in 2012.

There's not much of anything left now, just a few piles of rubble and empty pads of concrete.

Here's another view from past looking south.

On the AC&NA Branch near Tipple A and the Goodyear Mine (both long gone in this photo) sat Hanna Coal's Offices and Maintenance Buildings. The tracks exit the bottom of the photo and continue west to Tipple E and The Georgetown Prep Plant. Gem of Egypt fan page,
