Generally, 70-ton cars got 3 - 60-72” coils positioned toward each end, with none in the center, but other variations did happen, when loaders didn’t know better.  Smaller coils = more coils. When 100-ton cars became the norm, they could load up to 7 even larger coils.

Thanks Garth. Probably needed to see a more overhead shot to be able to see the cradle shape. Could coils be loaded the full length of the cradle?
