UP844 Refueling Ops, Parsons, KS

UP844 being refueled shortly after arrival in Parsons, KS on April 7, 2010. Train overnighted there before moving on south.
Nice Pics. How do they get the coal to the tender, did it come in a dump truck and get trans-loaded with a crane or something, a or did they just take on water?

That's fuel oil in the tanker which is offloading... 844 runs on fuel oil. I can't find my article where it had the conversion date.
oh ok Thanks for the info.
