Lot of power plants have this up in the coal bunker room to take coal from
the conveyers and put in the bunkers.

It is a belt conveyor with a tripper car. The tripper car rides on a pair
of rails either side of the conveyor. The belt is looped up onto the car
and discharged through a side chute. They are fairly common in material
handling situations where you need to discharge at multiple points along the
length of the conveyor. Do an internet search for “belt conveyor tripper car”
and you can find a lot of information about them.

While looking through old N&W photographs I ran across the attached photo.
Does anyone have any information on the coal loading equipment pictured?
This would make a unique modeling subject but I can’t find anything about
Thanks for your help.
