Default mining industry pics

Is there a website similar to rpn or any other that others know of that has a mining theme to it?

I don't believe so. There are plenty of pictures here from such railroads, though.

On the front page type Mine in the search box, and you will get lots of mining photos.

I was thinking less of the trains coming to and from the mines to drop off/pick up the payload, but perhaps the mining/excavating equipment & operations itself.. I happen to work an occasional weekend at a coal mine, and would have easy access to shoot some spectacular shots if I could ever remember to take may camera with me on my weekends.

Try the Yahoo group "Black Diamond". It's mostly an information group, but there are a few photos as well.

Here's a photo I took of a front end loader filling up a CSX train on the Georges Creek Sub: http://wade6573.rrpicturearchives.ne...aspx?id=233672
