    So what's the purpose of that? Are they getting samples of corn from different layers of the container cars for testing?

    I am assuming that is what is being done. Checking for infestation, moisture content, and general condition of the product. But then again, what do I know??;)

    Right on Mr. Riley.
    That probe is used mainly to check for Foreign Material (FM).
    At the plant, we used an auto probe arm for the grain trucks.
    I have been on top of many a rail car loading DDG ( distilled dry grain ) during storms and dead of winter.
    Probably why I no longer do that type of work. :eek:
