I am working on a problem of getting municipal solid waste out of a railcar (65 tons lets say). My guess is these will be gondolla cars. I have come across a "tipper" in Roanoke and a "rotator" in Utah but these seem to be the only solutions I can find as I cross the web. Anyone have any other ideas on how to unload railcars of municipal solid waste in a quick and easy manner? Potentially, this could amount to thousands of railcars a year so "by hand" is not an option. TIA, Randy
