The C&IM facility at Havana has utilized a Wellman Rotary Car Dumper since 01 Dec 1949. I do not know what method was used prior to that.

Does anyone have the builder and deliv date for the Chicago and Illinois Midland CIM 7000-series 70-ton depressed center floor offset-sides gons?

A FC Diag Sht would be great also.

Also, does anyone know what type/builder (tilting or rotary) of car dumper was used at the C&IM Havana, Illinois, coal car unloader-river barge loader facility and when it was installed?
