Amen Ben!  LOTS of lumber--particularly cants in GS goes.  For me, they are sent up the Cascade "Hill."  i have been looking at a photo shot at Wicopee (middle of the climb up the Cascades) as I study the Wicopee station site for modeling.  The photo in question is shot on a GS got loaded with lumber cants (rough-sawn, about 6x6 or so) loaded above the gon sides with side stakes and cross ties per the AAR loading diagrams for open car loading.  Prime Douglas Fir from the forests of Oregon!
