From Research: Peteler Portable Railway Peteler Portable Railway Manufacturing Co. Colonel Peteler invented and marketed the first dump car used for railroad construction. Duluth & Iron Range #8022 was built by the little-known Peteler Car Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1912. The D&IR's purpose was to haul iron ore, and lots of it. #8022 was used to ship potatoes from the Iron Range area to market. Francis Peteler invented the first rail-mounted dump car, as well as the first portable railway system. Company declared bankruptcy in 1914, at this point it was bought out at changed names.
