When Coal Is Over

In this Oct. 15, 2014 photo, coal comes off a conveyer belt as mine owner C.V. Bennett III drives by at the Perkins Branch Coal Mine in Cumberland, Ky. These days, the family’s mines are even having a hard time moving what coal they can produce. It seems everything from South Dakota shale oil to Iowa corn takes precedence when it comes to rail cars and locomotives. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
