These hopper cars almost aren't recognizable as hopper cars after a derailment at the west switch of Hudson. There is a certainly amount of dark irony in the advertised "Rapid Discharge" on the side of one of the hoppers. Surprisingly, it appears that most of the coal stayed in that particular hopper.

The upright car holding on to it's load is the car harolding rapid discharge!
