The ONLY car I have never witnessed being humped, is a "candystriper", Hydrosulfonic acid (sp.?) car. I have humped long cuts, of every conceivable chemical, over the Englewood hump, in loaded tank cars. The railroads swear this is legal, and we do it daily. Kicking them, for some strange reason, is another story altogether, even if you wanted to have a rider on the car. Go figure.....Can't kick Tank cars? We kick everything ( including tank cars ) except cars with long drawbars, or 6 axle tanks. Not worth the risk of drawbar bypass. We aren't stupid with our kicks, just enough to make a joint or get a car in the clear.
Drops are fun too
