[b]Former Presho resident loads historic ton of coal[/b]

Posted by Kim
Doug Diedrich left the Presho area and went to work for Black Thunder coal mine near Gillette, WY in the late 1970's. The mine was still under construction when the first trainload of coal was loaded on December 14, 1977. Diedrich was at the controls that day. He was also at the controls Friday, December 17, 2005, when the mine reached a milestone never before achieved by a coal mine anywhere in the world.
The Arch Coal mine loaded and shipped its one billionth ton of coal Friday afternoon. Diedrich loaded the 74th car, fitted with a placard touting the mine's one-billionth ton, of a Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad train.
The placard remained on the train as it made its way across the United States to a power plant in Stratton, Ohio.
Doug's wife Tracy (Christensen) formerly of Kennebec is also employed at Black Thunder. The mine, the second largest mine in North America, employees 650 and produces almost 10 percent of the U.S. coal supply.
