Sorry if this has been covered here before. I have seen some small ore cars that look like shallow rectangular boxes elevated quite a bit above the wheels. The ore bin is flat-bottomed and it looks like the cars might have dumped to the side by lifting one side. I have done some web searches and not found what I'm looking for. I don't know what they were called so I'm probably searching under the wrong terms. This sound at all familiar to you guys?
Is there a website with photos of small, locally built mining equipment?

I have always called them a side-dump ore car. Bachmann do one in On30 that will couple to HO locos without modification but this makes a big unit in HO. Minitrains in Europe might have something similar in their range that would run on 9 mm gauge tracks
In the US I know Western Scraper and CS Card made them in Colorado. I have seen the CS Card sales manual available on line. No doubt other companies were making them too.
