All Aboard The Gravel Train [Pic]. I don`t get this--anyone know anything about physics that can explain this logic?

Maybe they were hauling a statue or granite monolith?

Straps across a load of gravel ("ballast" in railroad terms) would not keep broken dumper sides up

Those straps are at least 4" nylon webbing, which means they have a tensile strength of ~40,000 lbs. That's enough to lift 2 Kenworth semi tractors off the ground. I think they could hold that gate up just fine.

@oldollie - couldn't you have just asked on Yahoo answers rather than posting up an uninteresting picture on this site?

Wut? I did not post a picture. And after all the posts here of screen shots with troll answers, do you really trust Yahoo! Answers for anything?

@ Shelworth
Straps across a load of gravel ("ballast" in railroad terms) would not keep broken dumper sides up - at least not for very long. I think they're there because they occasionally load ties into those cars; someone was just weak on the concept.
