We had this little side detour on our schedule for a major vacation trip were taking and were not disappointed. The mine tour is very well done, very informative and educatiional. The people were all very friendly and knowledgable. The mine itself was fascinating, well maintained and we felt perfectly safe with our guide. They ride you down a short way into the mine where you get out of the mine cars and then take a short but informative tour. Then there is the train ride along the mountside to a clearing where you deboard the train for another nice, informative little lecture about mining and the history of the area. We left here with a new appreciation for coal and mining and were glad we made the stop. If you're in the area this is a must do.
