The New York State Canals : The Canal as a Carrier of Coal (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The New York State Canals: The Canal as a Carrier of Coal With the routing of coal through the canal assured, and with the necessary boats in existence, the only facilities then lacking would be temporary storehouses, coal trestles, or other structures or devices which would permit the cheap and prompt transfer of coal from car to barge. NO difficulties exist in the providing of these facilities to men who would earnestly take up the proposi tion. In the case of export coal, it is believed canal barges may trans port coal from transshipping points in central New York to Ship side in New York harbor, thus eliminating transshipment and lighterage now required in the exportation of coal through New York and appreciably relieving the harbor congestion.
