    Bad ass catlike reflexes



    If you think this is cool you won't believe how they man the funnels to drain the tankers. There's a real art to it...

    Or a needless disregard for worker safety by super rich owners to invest in a relatively cheap way to minimize the risk to these guys being injured.

    Go do a bit of googling on how many fewer people die in industrial accidents these days compared to say the 1970s. There has been a dramatic improvement even in the US.

    As for doing this job specifically, was this in the US?

    Didn't sound like it to me.

    I didn't know that some coal cars were rotated and dumped



    And found this on a railroad site:

    Some coal cars of the "hopper" type (as opposed to the "gondola" type) are unloaded through bottom outlets. In modern coal service, these outlets are opened by air pressure, actuated by a "shoe" on the side of the car contacting an electric rail at the proper location at the unloader. These cars have 2 air lines through the train, one for the brakes and one for the hoppers, although I doubt the dump line is charged until the train reaches the utility.
