Station A was one of three mines (A. B. & C.) in the Coalinga Hills where coal was mined. The coal was transfered (sic) from mule driven ore wagons. Then by coal cars pulled by old Betsy to the transfer dock at Alcalde in Warthan Canyon, from there the coal cars were hooked to a Southern Pacific engine and pulled to Goshen near Visalia CA. From there the cars were sent to points north and south.

On April 3, 1906 the City of Coalinga was incorporated deriving it's name from Coaling Station A.
