History: These very distinctive cars are the railroad equivalent of a dump truck. Designed to carry up to 100 tons, they are fitted with large pneumatic cylinders and side doors, and can dump to the left or right of the tracks. While used primarily in work train service for dumping ballast, fill and rip rap, they can also be used in revenue service to carry sand, gravel, cinders, coal, limestone and other loose bulk materials used in industry.
Their rail equipment included the Dump Car, the Larry Car and an axle-less mining locomotive. The mining locomotive was capable of operating on 25 foot radius curves.
Difco was acquired by Trinity Industries in 1966.
