Will need to copy and post a few photos of the Ajax Coal Mine, located on a bald prairie bluff with the mine itself about 200Ft below, an incline brought the loads up to the tipple for hand loading into boxcars at least until 1946, when trucks took over till 1967. The Railway which served it was the "Medicine Hat Railway & Coal Co" which interchanged with the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Motive power was an XCPR 1888 built 2-6-0, rolling stock was either a XCPR passenger car or caboose to take workers to the mine.
