when did they switch to natural gas? a quick google search shows hints of info, but it seems its more ho hum don't let anybody know.

New EPA rules seem to push to use natural gas now, so ND obviously probably would make that switch.
That ends the coal moves.

ND has had several sources of power generation for years, including coal, fuel oil, and natural gas.  This report shows that for the most part they have converted over to natural gas.  I wonder if the coal percentage used reported for 2012-13 is based on the piles they had on hand?

When I last checked the former transload area by the old NJI&I roundhouse there did not seem to be any signs of recent activity.
