One possibility is coils of wire on large spools turned sideways. I've seen, or seen photos, of coils like this enclosed in boards that were banded around the wooden edges of the spools with metal straps. If any of you have Gregg's TRAINSHED CYCLOPEDIA No. 36 (or the 1919 CAR BUILDER'S DICTIONARY), look on page 1112, figure 93. This diagram is for large boiler sections, but the loading principle is similar and is the closest I can find.
