Re: Placard: Concentrated Floor Loading

Now I get it.  This placard is not for use for the company doing the loading, unless they had contacted the LV about advice on the load and the railroad sent them this placard to attach along with whatever else was attached, or the LV carmen themselves attached this placard after the car was picked up.

The placard is for the advice of any train or switch crew handling this car, up to the point of spotting it at the receiver's dock, to be careful with it in order to avoid heavy switching causing the load to displace and possibly collapsing or destabilizing the car.
