The hopper cars that Xcel Energy uses for hauling coal are pretty cool cars. In addition to being hoppers (meaning they can be emptied through doors in the bottom), they are also equipped with rotary Couplers so the cars can be rolled on their side while remaining on the track and coupled to the car ahead of and behind them.
