Ballast Car

Our Ballast Cars are all steel, open top cars with riveted side construction and a load capacity of over 110 tons. The automatic doors function like traditional ballast cars, capable of distributing ballast either on the inside or outside of the rails. Further, with a optional solar-powered activation system, ballast can be dumped remotely by radio control. This eliminates the necessity for the operator to manually activate the air dump system at each car.
