Like a row of pumpkins.

CSX ballast hoppers, in their bright orange scheme, almost look like a row of pumpkins sitting on the fourth iron just west of Nevins Yard. It also looks like they have solar panels on the top. Any information on those panels would be greatly appreciated. UPDATE: Thanks to Peter L., I learned that those panels are solar panels to power the dump doors, so the crew can spread the ballast by remote control.
