The Coal Station was a large, multi-piece destination. A detachable crane would pick up the included coal cargo from one car and swivel to drop it onto the coal hopper's conveyor belt. Turning the red knob on the side of the hopper would move the cargo up the conveyor belt and into the chute, which would deposit the coal into the other waiting car.

- The prototype Coal Station had black roofs and stockier coal cars.
- The crane had a plastic sheath which would conceal the magnet when fully retracted.This made it more difficult for attached cargo to be removed by hand. The plastic barrier on the lower end of the hopper would detach the cargo and drop it onto the conveyor belt when the crane swiveled cargo against it.
- The Brendam Bay Cargo Loader, released in 2014, works similarly to this item.
