RAILROAD--COAL, AGGREGATE AND ORE CARS--YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW

Railroad handling of bulk materials such as coal, sand, gravel, and ore has recently been studied by engineers to maximize efficiencies offered by this mode of materials handling. The author describes details of novel rail car designs that assure longer in-service time between repairs and maximize the users' return on investment. Associated facilities that match the capabilities of such cars are described.
