All during the P.C.C.M. 37 concluding episodes on the N.Y.C.T.L. the Coal Job was spotted during various installments. This was done to set up the dispatch of PC Unit Coal Train URN-3 (Terminal Yard - West Mill).
After arriving at West Mill on Ralph's K.P.D. layout URN-3 will be divided into a block of coal hoppers for the KP&W / B&O train to the Genesee coal docks in Rochester NY and the remainder of the coal hoppers will then be forwarded from West Mill to Rock Ridge Yard via Weehawken Yard on 1:1 scale Sir Neal's A.P.R.R. layout.
