D&H #7608 with "leaking" boxcar (1982)

This shot from August 1982 captures D&H GP39-2 #7608 leading a freight train at Eagle Bridge, NY, (home of the interchange with the Batten Kill Railroad). What really caught my attention was the first car. We have all modeled boxcars with open doors revealing some detailing inside... perhaps a full or partial load, or maybe the remains of a previous load... but how many of us have modeled a boxcar "exploding" with a load of cardboard refuse falling out the side? It would make an eye-catching model, and if you used thin Kraft paper then it wouldn't harm or damage any passing trains that might brush against it.
