locked Coal for the old Duke Power's Buck Steam Plant


George Courtney
 

I'm curious which coal mining area provided coal for the Buck Steam Plant?  I understand this Duke Power plant was near Asheville and would have been served by the Southern.  However,was the coal provided by the s.w. Virginia area or the mines near Middlesboro, Ky?  Or some other source?  Could it have come off the L&N and been interchanged with the Southern?  My time line of interest is between World War II and the early 1950's.

Thanks,
George Courtney
