How to empty a gravel car

How do you empty a gravel car? Simple just pick it up with a crane upside down. Gil Ford caught this B&m wreck crane picking up a B&M 10000 series hopper (Same cars that Bluford Shops did for me) that had derailed on the Ossipee Gravel train in Dover, NH

Let's hope that the Ian's Bluford cars stay on the rails better.   ;)

It is  ;)  The Ossipee Gravel train (DOBO and BODO now run by New Hampshire Northcoast) hauls sand, gravel and other mixed agg.
