tremely heavy strains often causing damage. The top plow was of three types: right hand, left hand and center plows. The latter forcing the ballast out both sides of the cars and the previ- ous two out either one side or the oth- er. In this mode the cars end gates were removed prior to loading the car. When arranged to dump outside the rail, the dumping side-doors were oper- ated by crank-activated shafts along the outside of the side sills. When arranged to dump between


the rails, the car’s end gates were repo- sitioned inward and the two floor cen- ter sections raised to lean against the car’s sides. The longitudinal hopper had dumping doors along one side op- erated by a ratchet wheel connected to a conventional shaft and chain arrangement. A load in the car’s longi- tudinal hopper would be dumped be- tween the rails. In this mode, the car’s end gates were moved inward as the end floor sections, that were directly over the trucks, were fixed and would therefore retain part of the load. Many types of Hart Convertible cars


were produced as the basic convertible design was improved over the years. Some of the design variables were


length, inside height, number of side doors and type of underframe (truss- rod or steel center-sill). The Hart Con- vertible car was used for many years as standard equipment for construc- tion, ballast and maintenance work on numerous railways in North America. In the U.S. the cars were sold by the


Rodger Ballast Car Co. of Chicago and built by the Rodger Ballast Car Co. and under license by American Car & Foundry and various U.S. car builders. U.S. railways that owned various ver- sions constituted a long list and includ- ed NP, GN, SP&S, C&NW, Rock Is- land, RF&P, Kansas City Southern, Maine Central, NYC, Erie, Rutland, Union Pacific and Wabash. In 1905-06 no less than 107 railways had pur- chased various versions of Hart Con- vertible ballast cars. In Canada, Hart Convertible cars


using the patents of inventors Hart and Otis were initially built by the Do- minion Dump Car Company, their sub- sidiary in Montreal. In 1907 the Do- minion Dump Car Co. was renamed the Hart-Otis Car Co. which had cars built under license by the Canada Car Co. in its Montreal-Turcot plant and by the Dominion Car and Foundry. Both
