Okay I've checked the strategy guide, I am not able at this time to switch time periods and I just don't know what to do.

I'm in Scotland, have the FULL thing of coal, click on the shovel and it says he can't use it to dig the earth. The strategy guide says pull the Full thing of coal in the furnace and use the shovel three times blah blah. I've got 34 out of 44 things done and really do not want to restart this. What am I doing wrong?

I think you have to do this during night time. If it is daylight go back to cemetery and use the hourglass to switch to night.

You've probably done this, but just double checking. You have to place your container of coal in front of the furnace and then use the shovel.

I'll just start the level over. I seem to have done everything right and perhaps it's just a glitch or something.

I experienced this glitch with the Mac version of the game. After starting the location over 3 times, I discovered if I switched to the day and completed a hidden object scene at the gypsy wagon and then switched back to night, I could then move the coal shovel on the left and proceed with the level. Hope this helps anyone who has the same problem.
