So the one thing I'm curious about, that I don't recall from the Soo book (mine is packed),is what prompted the center-door design?  I know this became quite a bit more common, alter the end of this list, but was it a specific need, say specific loading spot spacing, specific commodity, or this is an inherently better design because it's symmetrical?  (I threw that last one in out of thin air.)
