Bituminous country bank mine cars. Used in small mines where the landowner mined small amounts of coal for personal use. Typically they were just pushed by hand or pulled by small animals, like goats or dogs, out of the mine. The extended ends provided a place for the pusher to kneel on while coasting.

not a country bank mine car but part of the same private collection.
