Dual dump wagon for BHP iron ore

BHP Billiton needed to replace damaged bottom dump wagons for its GML line, which is due to close in approximately three years. BHPB needed to maintain production, but did not want to expend capital money on new bottom dump cars that would soon become obsolete. It was therefore decided to design a wagon with dual dump capabilities that could be used first on the GML line and later modified for the MNM line, which had rotary unloading facilities. The dual dump wagon was based on the proven new design currently in service on the MNM line.
