But John, the car in the photo CLEARLY has an inside height well in excess of 2’-11”.
Measured from where? The dimension is intended to be measured from a flat floor, but these new fangled hopper bottom gondolas don't have a flat floor, the outlets are at frame level and the floor, such as it is, slopes up from there. So where exactly is this dimension supposed to be taken from? If the guy submitting the data chose the top of the slope sheet as the "floor", the sides likely only extend 2'-11" higher. Really need a top of sides over rail dimension to make any sense of it.
