There are photos of ties being stacked like that on flat cars on the D&IR in the early 1900's.

I have a photo of a CB&Q composite gondola filled with ties. The unusual aspect of the photo is that the tie stacks on both ends were lengthwise, while the rest of the tie stacks were crosswise with respect to the rails. That arrangement made an interesting load for a war emergency gondola.
