Configuring and operating a bulk railcar loading station to meet your needs

This article describes what equipment a bulk railcar loading station can include and various methods for operating the station. The first sections describe the equipment and operation of loading stations and their evolution since the 1960s. Later sections explain what you need to know to select a railcar loading station that meets your production needs. While the information concentrates on using closed hopper railcars with four compartments, the principles can be applied to open hopper railcars and gondolas.

Reducing labor, increasing capacity, and reducing loading times have driven many improvements in dry bulk product handling operations. The same goals are changing the ways dry products such as chemicals, polymers, agricultural products, and minerals are loaded into bulk railcars.
