Bachmann Woodside Tippers Lost Thread ??

A while back, someone was asking about Bachmann woodside tippers and how they dumped. I can't find the old message, but I did find this photo I knew I had hiding somewhere, which shows (sort of) how they dumped, and also the size of these things -- nearly all the photos I've seen put them about this big.

There is chain attached to the frame and also to the bucket. That long "chain" in the middle is a hook that connects both chains (frame and bucket) together with the ring holding the hook. When you lift the ring, the hook opens and drops the chain from the frame. When you undo both chains from one side, the bucket will then tip to the side with the chain that is still hooked together.
