Re: Distinctive Flat Car Toothpicks Timber Load

Do you mean on moving trains or on all freight cars, even those parked?   Do you know when that ban happened?

      I believe it was for moving trains. Obviously there was some slack, because often big loads had placards on them, giving the builder name if nothing else, but the routine attachment on car sides did largely disappear. As you mention, of course, a stationary car might be photographed with a banner for publicity purposes, then the banner removed before the load was switched out.
