Re: Photo: Leveling The Grain:

My guess is the load was leveled to see if the load limit of the car had
been reached. Boxcars intended for grain loading had lines painted on the
inside of the car lining indicating the max limit for different kinds of
grain. Attached is a photo showing four different lines for four different
kinds of grain.

Could this have possibly mattered? After an hour over jointed rail on
branch line track all would have worked itself out.
