Here is a partial view of a GTW composite gondola with a lumber load.  No date, location or source noted on the photo but I believe the steam locomotive is Canadian National rather than GTW from its number and apparent "prairie" setting (note the cattle guard at the grade crossing):


And this type of lading is often noted as "timbers" rather than "lumber" on waybills.
