Re: Heavy duty trucks on B&LE hoppers-Why?
However, after loading the helium cars became lighter and therefore less need for the clasp brakes.
One professional railroader told me they had a helium car on the PRR that was overloaded and it actually started to float above the rails. They had to open a valve to bleed some of the helium off to get it back down on the rails.
Or was it on the SP?
