Re: GATX Dry-Flo tank/covered hopper car

Gene Green <bierglaeser@...>

I didn't know or didn't recall that GATX used the term "Dry-Flo" to refer to later products of the covered hopper type.

My question was about a tank car using a pair of conveyer belts to move granular material to the center of the tank car for unloading. The external characteristics of note were small loading hatches along the top of the car on either side of the dome. There was also a "houseing" at each end through with the conveyer belt ran.
