Do you know where we can get about two pick up loads of coal?
Once it was common. Ships ran on it, trains did as well, it heated homes and ran industries. Today? The nearest source we’re aware of is hundreds of kilometres away and the cost of getting it here is exorbitant.
Our display designer is asking for your help in locating coal for displays on board the ships. Is there an abandoned pile of the stuff around? Any other ideas? We know that at one time coal was brought to Penticton from somewhere around Princeton.
If you have any idea of where we can obtain some, call the ship – 250-492-0403.
