Yes the coal goes into the tipple by air assist. The tipple will fill about 26-27 cars.

[QUOTE=CambriaArea51;2507704]Not really I've seen bigger ones than this one.

I wondered if it is scale to a prototype, or what is height to scale?

The model or the video.

The model was built to accommodate loading several cars at a show. It also has to be portable because it's not a periment display at a club.

This loadout is between 75 and 80 ft diameter and around 300 ft tall and has two silos. In G (1:32 standard gauge) scale, each silo would be almost 2.5 actual ft diamter and nearly 10ft tall. They are really big. Most models, not so much.
