This simply newgrf provide some extra functionality to existing default houses (from arctic and temperate climate): early era houses (for example these redbrick tenements with shops and offices) accept coal. Only houses with 1950 or 1960 limit are affected.
Additionally, default power plant industry is override by same, but with possibility of setting appearance date (for example 1882).
It would be interesting for those, who like XIX century based game, or for those, who like more challenging games, because coal destination vary, when old houses are replaced by modern ones.
Another purpose for this set is to bring power plants to FIRS (only full FIRS economy, not tropical FIRS, because custom powerplants are using slot 53):

There are also some tweaks for fountain and monument placement, to avoid cluttering these object in the city centre (and dropping station goods focus as an result).
Current version is uploaded to bananas.
I didn't checked compatibility with other house sets or any AI, yet.
In case of using this add-on with ECS, power plant should be disabled (set 0 instead of date), because ECS provide own power plants with proper appearance date.
