In my experience of this area, the really tall ones were loaded two-only to a gon, lengthwise, near the ends. Some of the shorter ones were loaded sideways. You usually can't see the stools, which were generally loaded in a pile in the center. I love these shots that show how to model the inside, and for loads like this, since I model this area of Pgh.

I see the ingots are loaded two different ways in two gondolas.
Note the left over debris in the empty gons, too.

Nice P&LE gon shot. These are the big ingot molds they used at USS Homestead:
I think the RIX molds are similar. I remember the new molds being shipped in were a combo of black, new rust and mold release white, in color.
