Covered coal conveyors extend out of one of the sorting towers at LAXT, a former state of the art facility for transporting coal to awaiting ships bound for the Orient.

The site was abandoned only a few years after opening, when coal sources in Australia and Asia became viable. LAXT is currently bound up in numerous law suits and conflict of interest battles, partially because the city of LA spent millions in taxpayer’s money to complete the project.
