Nice shots. Do you happen to have a 'roster shot' of one of the ore hoppers? I'm curious what the rubber-tired wheel is? Something to guide them through an unloader? It'd be a nice subject for Freight Car Friday.

I believe that the rubber tire is used for opening and then closing the doors on the bottom of the car.

Okay; I thought a system of little wheels on the top did this, like some ONR/CN ore hoppers. I didn't realize these ones were bottom-dump.
