Coal is a great fossil fuel. It is an odd sort of fossil fuel used in trains and is transported by boats. Boats sometimes even travel for thousands of miles to transport coal. To find coal, you have to drill in the right spot. When coal is burned, it makes a lot of heat. When coal, oil, and gas are burned it makes electricity. There are three types of coal. One is the Lignite. Second is the Bituminous coal ,and thirdly, there is the Anthracite. The best for burning is the Anthracite, but Bituminous is the most used.
