In the US, even in dryer parts of the country, coal for locomotives is usually stored indoors. The only outdoors storage of coal I have seen around here is for power plants. In 1978, during a coal miners strike, Indiana University {which then used coal to heat their buildings} dug so deep into their pile as to find some that was barely burnable it had been outside so long.

Maybe indoorstorage was full. I also don't have a glue how long it takes them to work through that pile so maybe it doesn't stay outside long enough to get humid enough to cause a problem. I just liked the view when walking by.
