I have modeled something like this on my railroad.  It allows for loads-in/loads-out operations at the mine (and me having to deal with fewer repositioning of empty cars between operating sessions.)

“Short Loads” is term that has been used less frequently over the last 25 years.  Short loads are also referred to as “Raw Coal”.  It is coal that has not been cleaned adequately of rock or other impurities to be delivered directly to the consuming consumer.  So, if the mine location didn’t have adequate cleaning facilities the loads would be moved to a more extensive “cleaning plant” for processing.  Hope this answers your question.
