As defined by William Brotherton in Burlington Northern Adventures, a common detection of a bad order car is the "wham, wham, wham" sound as the car goes down the track. This indicates flat spots on the wheels and are now picked up by defect detectors (during his time with BN, defect detectors weren't around yet).
