The only problem is I don't know how a drop bottom would work with truss rods. 
Sure like them though.

Here's a peek.http://nnry.com/history/httpdocs/Ingoldsby/gold1.htm


Thanks for the link.

I also often wondered how they would have got the ore out of those cars. 

Have seen a prototype picture of a similar car with truss rods -

maybe they dumped the stuff through narrow doors between the outer and inner rods?
