This structure is of a substantial girder construction, and supports a large weigh-hopper over the loadout track on which the ore wagons are loaded - The facility is provided with floodlighting over the hopper and over the wagon being loaded, so enabling continued operation during the hours of darkness

 

Ore is loaded into the large hopper over the wagon, which then delivers it into the wagon in a controlled fashion.
