This is the location where coal for the boilers was stockpiled. Outisde the Coal Bin on track zero, a small coal dump under the track fed a conveyor, which passed diagonally up into the coal bin. The coal bin operated like an oversized locomotive tender, with the coal piled high inside and held back by a series of boads across the entrance.

The conveyer has long been removed and its entrance boarded over. Into the 1990's and 2000's the coal bin roof has become very deteriorated and lets most of the water into the building. The FEBT restoration crew plans to address the Coal Bin in 2005 or 2006.
