  • Short Summary

    World's largest coal pier - machinery in action.

  • Description

    Baltimore, MD - the world's largest coal pier, capable of passing 7,000 tons an hour.

    Shot panning past these coal structures; smoke coming out of smoke stack. Cool shot of coal going up 2 conveyor belts. Box full of coal moving up; being turned over. A huge bin sort of thing spills out black powder. The machinery lowers the cart back down onto track.

    Technology. Power; energy; industry.
