Re: Photo: UP/OSL Livestock Car 37197 (1943)

  Thanks for this photo link.  To the best of my knowledge (memory?) I
don't remember ever seeing a double deck loading operation.  It would
appear that it wasn't possible to load both levels at once - at least not
at this particular location.  I love the flat lighting in this picture - gives
it a "feeling" that we often miss/don't have on our layouts.
  Since the sheep are being loaded into an OSL car - I'm guessing
that they are being "reloaded" and will be forwarded from this location
to some other (for slaughter?).  Calumet is in the Chicago area so that
makes sense (at least to me).
