Re: Photo: Unloading Something From A Boxcar

I'd agree with Dennis.  Using his link to the Matich Corp website, and clicking on the photo "first paver" (second row, far right picture) shows a dump truck with a three compartment bed, probably similar to what is being loaded at the boxcar:

Makes sense that the compartments contain sand, aggregate, and portland cement, any of which, or all, could be unloaded from the boxcar.  Portland was probably in bags, but the sand and aggregate would not need "protection", and could have been loaded and unloaded "loose'.
