- I don't recall seeing coal delivered to the 11th Avenue coalhouse. I
remember the whole structure being there but never with a hopper
inside. The structure was torn down in the mid 50s but not the
trestle. The trestle was used to unload cement for quite a while. I
guess the cement was used for the Route 30A by-pass. The coalhouse
siding was used all the time for box cars. My guess would be lumber
for Kingsboro Lumber Co.
