I don’t think the resolution of your satellite photos has anything to do
with your processor. The earth is huge and unless satellites are
specifically tasked to do otherwise they take very low resolution images.
Plus. Free offerings are likely to be lower resolution.
Maybe you could find some historical data on taxes collected for delivered
coal during that time period and see if there was any fluctuations? I mean
if you really disrupted coal deliveries something should have been affected
Also maybe see if there are any web forums for train conductors etc. maybe
find a retired one that would point you in the right direction for finding
the train schedule info you need.
Seems like retirees love to talk. They are probably all on Facebook anyway
