Some roads did have an SOP to open journal box lids
on cars before they went over the hump.
Some railroads would have the car department inspect the cars upon
arrival, opening the journal box lids during the inspection in the
receiving yard. If a car had a defect, it would be sent to the the car
shop track in the "bowl" class track. Cars made up for trains would
have their journal box lids closed during the outbound inspection.
