Jun 13, 2018  As a scenic detail, coal presents no problems. However, if used as ballast... Coal is carbon and will conduct electricity. You might not be able to do block detection because of the current flowing thru the coal. The heat generated by the current flow could cause the rails to expand or, worst case, start a fire. Happy Modeling, Bruce

Coal Dust Sierra Club

Coal dust causes deadly train derailments and fires, and decreases visibility for those driving vehicles near tracks. Coal dust clogs spaces in the rail ballast and turns into a solid, plastic-like substance when wet. This reduces the friction needed for safe rail operation, decreases track stability, and can lead to train derailments. (10)

Coal Trains Mean Coal Dust-Period - Sightline Institute

May 04, 2016  The US Department of Transportation classifies coal dust as a “pernicious ballast foulant” that can weaken and destabilize rail tracks. It is not clear how much coal dust might escape in the Pacific Northwest, but one watchdog group has verified that coal and coal dust do escape from open rail cars traveling along Puget Sound coastlines.

Laboratory validation of coal dust fouled ballast discrete ...

Coal dust fouling has been identified as one of the most critical fouling scenarios as it significantly decreases the strength and stability of railroad ballast. A Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) approach was adopted in this study to investigate the coal dust fouled ballast performances.

Laboratory Characterization of Fouled Railroad Ballast ...

Approximately 15% coal dust fouling by weight of ballast was statistically significant to cause considerable strength reductions. In the case of ballast fully fouled with wet coal dust at 35% OMC, the friction angles obtained were as low as the friction angle of coal dust itself. Railroad ballast is uniformly graded coarse aggregate placed between

From these studies, BNSF has determined that coal dust poses a serious threat to the stability of the track structure and the operational integrity of our lines in, and close to, the mines in the PRB. The STB, our regulating agency, has confirmed that coal dust is a harmful contaminant of rail ballast.
