Re: Lots of coal in the US!!

The British steam locomotives ran mostly on Welsh coal. It is a hard coal with a higher heat content and less ash than the coal you find in North America.

It allowed a smaller firebox than typical North American locomotives, and they wouldn’t run well on most U.S. coal. Wyoming basin coal may be the only exception.
