Re: Dump cars

I have an 8mm movie circa 1958 of a mixed train on the ATSF with an air dump behind the engine. When it came to a particular spot, they uncoupled the rest of the train, pulled up onto an embankment, and dumped the rip-rap. Then they backed onto the train and continued on their way. I also have copies of orders from John Moore collection where air dumps of sand were delivered to stock pens along the Pawhuska branch for bedding the stock cars.

On the Santa Fe, we moved a lot of ballast and riprap in addition to dirt.
