Wow! Those must have been some valuable sheep to travel that distance.

Is it possible that CN stock cars were held by US roads in the steam era if needed for loading on their lines? It certainly happened with CN boxcars.

Group, Of course CN stock cars got down to the USA! Or at least one did: CN 171510, loaded at Guelph, Ont. with lambs to Dixon. Cal. (near Sacramento). This was on Nov. 24, 1947 on the LA (Los Angeles Special). The UP must have handed the car off to the SP to get it to Dixon. This is the only example that I have of a Canadian stock car on the UP in 1947-48. FHP (Frank H. Peacock)
