Don Albertson - Would you kindly enlighten me as to where these coal fields are located in Papua New Guinea?

And of course the locomotives used in the haulage, Amen.

It is now 20 years since I visited PNG. Even then I could see how the good Christian missionaries who came 100+ years before had sown the seeds of destruction with their self-satisfied soul saving ways.

John Prine sang of the destruction of his home in his song "Paradise". He couldn't go home because it had been hauled away by the coal trains.

"And they dug for their coal 'til the land was forsaken and they wrote it all down as the progress of Man."

Thank you for this acknowledgement.

God bless!
