Locomotive and wagons used to go on a narrow gauge railroad (the so called "Decauville" railroad), good for the narrow spaces. The locomotive and the wagons for the trasportation of miners were very simple ones, with a small roof but open on the sides. The extracted material reached the telpher with the train, and then it was transferred to the other plants. Then it was carried to the road and from there to the ovens.
