Coal. Black Diamonds.
This important commodity is best transported across the country by rail. That’s where the AutoFlood
III rapid discharge hopper car enters the conversation.
Production began on these all-aluminum body railcars in 2004. What followed was thousands
of orders for these rapid discharge hoppers, which have traversed almost all of North America.
With millions of tons of coal per year being mined and hauled out of various locations across the
continent, you would be hard pressed to not have seen one of these prototype cars in a modern
day coal train.
This 4200 cubic foot, exterior post prototype (not to be confused with other types of prototype
exterior-post or interior post models) is primarily used as a rapid discharge car, which can unload
their cargo in a matter of seconds via the bottom bay doors. However, the car can also be
equipped with a rotary coupler at the A end of the car (or on both ends on double-rotary cars),
as indicated by the color blocks on the cars’ ends, for either bottom discharge or rotary unloading
based on the infrastructure at the final processing facility.
