To rrj you just stuck a nerve,,grain trains== covered hoppers, i don,t
trust loaded covered hoppers as for some reason they seem very
derailment prone, I have had them pick switches in the yard for no
appperent reason and they rock like hell on bad track, almost every
derailment i seen on youtube involves covered hoppers.
