Thanks Jeff!
That would work well with the breweries that I want to
build. Even for grain, the doors on a coal hopper seem like they'd
be a little "loose". Do you know if they put some sort of seal in
the hopper before loading the car?
==================
A lot of them were pretty tight. On the NYC we used a lot of them for
iron ore, but had a high reject rate before being sent to mines for
leaky doors. If they would hold iron ore, no problem with many grains.
