Re: 3 grab irons on the left side of a work train UP box


I believe there are four grabs there, not three--one other down low.  That would make it a ladder.  Which would be handy if one were going around the corner of the car to and from the car end.  Which might well have a door.  I suppose you could argue that there's likely a full ladder on the other side of the car, and that a person could use that one.  Well, yeah.  But, then, there are four grabs right there before us, and they had to be added for a reason.
