Re: Increasing slope sheet angle on hoppers

Could be something as basic as sand, gravel, or crushed stone, although most railroads using old hoppers in such service didn't bother with alterations to suit the material. A relatively steep slope sheet helps discharge aggregates that can be reluctant, and the reduced cubic capacity works for a material with bulk density around 100 pcf.
