I have two photos of Christmas
Trees on flat cars. One taken in Ontario in 1926 shows a
flat car #651498 (can’t make out a name) being piled high
with Christmas Trees. The other is of a DM&? flatcar in
downtown Des Moines IA being unloaded of Christmas Trees in
1935. Both cars have tall sticks in the stake pockets, the
trees are bundled together in groups of 6-10 trees and they
stacked like cordwood across the car. Interesting
photos.  Doug Hardingwww.iowacentralrr.org
