Picture of the day: Some coal mine history at Svalbard

Todays image is some of the carriages  that were used to bring the coal down from the many mines surrounding Longyearbyen town at Svalbard. Today the mining is very much reduced , and the carriages have been replaces with trucks. Still they make for excellent photographic opportunities.
