Re: [EXT] Re: [RealSTMFC] PLE 46145 gon with scrap tin load 1942

Open-top freight cars can also be overloaded by volume. And , this doesn't look like a scrapyard location; it's way too clean. Notice the house car coupled onto the gon.

I think the scrap on the ground has been shoved off the car to keep it from falling off in a train.

I would agree. I tend to think that the scrap on the ground is what is left of the pile that was being loaded into the car.

I think a load of tin can scrap would be hard to overload, lots of air space.
