Re: Stock cars : racks

I just went through the first 100 pages of the June 1890 ORER and didn't see the word "rack" associated with stock cars once. I did see "Palace", "SD" and "DD".

The ORER refers to stock cars (1890s) as “racks,” not double deck, or single deck, or Palace, but racks.  Can anyone tell me what that means?
