New Loading Facility
In 2012, a new rail loading facility was added at CCT. This allows blending of Illinois Basin coal with western coal to load back onto rail to send to utilities in the southeast. The loading system is of CCT's own design and patents have been applied for. This new capability has proven to be very useful and over 50 trains have already been loaded. The train loadout has the same functionality as the barge loadout, with full weighing, sampling, and blending capability.
