Bob I seem to recall that photo having been discussed before. The consensus was that it was a load of steel coils, loaded on end. The car had been involved in a mishap and the load had been jostled. The photo may even be from a damage claim report.

Subject: [STMFC] Gondola Load: What Is It?

 

 

This photo is from the Ray Breyer collection. The load appears to be rolled coils of metal, but the manner of loading seems too haphazard for such a load:

So is this load something else?

 

Thanks.
