Re: Loading Barrels In A Boxcar

A "barrel of oil" (unit of measurement) is 42 gallons. So perhaps that is
the size of the barrels.

Something caught my eye in the photos of those gentlemen loading those barrels.  I rolled a few of the 55 gallon petroleum barrels back in my day during a stint in the Air Force  in the 60s and the barrels in the photo seam to be shorter then the 55 gal type. Perhaps about 3/4 the size of a standard 55 gallon size.. Just saying...
