Locust Summit, Between Mt. Carmel and Shenandoah, Pa. the Locust Summit Central Breaker of the Phila. & Reading Coal & Iron Co., has a daily capacity output of more than 16,500 tons of prepared anthracite coal. Carloads of run of the mine coal are fed into the breaker at the rate of one every two and a half minutes. the great conveyor belts carry this coal at the rate of 1,200 tons per hour to the machinery which sizes and cleans it and removes all impurities. The inclined structure beginning at the left and leading to the top of the breaker contains the conveyor belts. The pipe lines at the right enclose other conveyor belts which carry off incombustible material which is removed in the breaker.
