Re: Stock Car Question

Rob, stock cars never reached weight capacity when filled with livestock. A
40' stock car could hold 23, 1200lb steers, that is only 27600lbs or 13,8
tons, well below the capacity of the car. The only way you could over load a
stock car was if you filled it with pig iron instead of pigs. And yes pig
iron could be a possible load in a stock car. They were used to haul
anything that could withstand exposure to the weather and would fit through
the door.
