Re: this nice shot of the GM&O freight house

An interesting detail:  the cars are aligned side to side, but spaced apart, requiring each one to be decoupled.

There would have been good access for carts and trucks on the opposite side. It depends: a transfer house would not have had that because freight was being transferred and forwarded.  A freight house would have a street side for delivery to local customers.
