In a discussion last week magnet wire was mentioned as a good candidate for tie downs on open loads Does anyone have a source for small quantities for this item? The spools that I see would last till the next milainium.

SCL, SOU, TH&B, UP, and WABASH
all had box cars with roof hatches.
And that's not a complete list. Tony mentioned the SP, too.

Boxcar With Roof Hatches
I've seen a few photos of boxcars
with roof hatches for loading such commodities as aluminum
dross, cement, various clays, lime and spent grain.
All of the photos I've seen are
associated with shippers in the Southeast and Midwest.
Would such boxcars have served
shippers in the Southwest to any degree?
