Very cool.

I troll this site extensively for rail and industry images. My next layout inspiration is the B&O Allegheny Yard branch that ran along the Allegheny River out of Willow Grove. I've found lots of great images close to my 1926 modeling focus.

Eric;

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.

Gang;

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.
