Converted Supply Car



Supply cars were used to transport tools and other equipment into and out of the mine. A water tank has been added to this electric supply car, providing a water source to spray down the coal dust in the tunnels.  It was powered by batteries that were enclosed in compartments to prevent electrical sparks.  There was a charger right next to it in case they ran out of juice.  Notice the seats?  They are placed in such a manner that the driver could drive in both directions.
