While this might not have been a technical violation of the car service rules it seems to me that the SPS car was a lot more likely to be sent in the direction of home from Fort Dodge than from Sturgeon Bay ;)Since the CGW did not have a direct connection with the SP&S, the empty car, if not needed for loading, would not have been sent "homeward" at all, but returned to the connection from which it had been received loaded. I'm speaking of the days prior to widespread use of SCO 90.
