When you approach the coal loading facility at Shaw Mine, reduce your speed to about 3 mph or 5 km/h. Use the dynamic brakes if necessary to control your speed. If you do not have the HUD activated, activate it now. With the HUD active, you can monitor the amount of coal in each coal wagon. As shown in the image to the right, drive under the loading facility. When a coal wagon is 75% full, the yellow marker will turn green. Make sure that all of the wagons are filled to at least 75%.
