The load matches The ARA’s Open Top diagram (for the period) for girders. The manufactured bolsters are bolted to the flat car deck through its ends and on each side of the center sill. The girder is secured on each end with the rods passing through the attached bolster and into the bracket bolted to the bottom flange.
