Bulk Loading Railroad Transport

I haven't photoed one of these from above before, and was surprised to see a top loading hatch.

RRTU 004093-9 is a 4FG9 coded box.  I don't think the top loading would work very well considering the angle of repose for most product, but still could be handy if not required to fill to the brim.
