Susquehanna Coal Company used several small 0-4-0 and 0-6-0 switcher locomotives at its collieries to move anthracite coal from the mines to the breakers, and to move empty and loaded coal hoppers and freight cars around the yards. The coal company shipped its coal in long lines of black hoppers and gondolas. In the yards on any day it was possible to see coal hoppers and freight cars owned by the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Central of New Jersey Railroad, the Erie Railroad, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and the Delaware and Hudson Railroad.
