I have attached a photograph of a MP boxcar being lifted and turned to clear it of grain.

Here is an ad for a boxcar unloader device. You can see it tilts and rolls.

On the page reached through Bob's second link, the fifth photo from the bottom, "Staley grain car dumper 1951", caught my attention. How does the grain get out of the rebuilt WABASH boxcar? Does that device roll the car as well as tilt it?
