Bill,

pulp
wood flats and gons that carry pulp logs back in the
old
days when I used to live in Michigan.
In New England, boxcars were the prime carriers of
pulpwood until the mid-1950's. Also used were
roofless, otherwise obsolete Boxcars. The B&M's pulp
racks resembled an open-roofed stock car crammed
inside a steel gondola, but these were gone by 1949.
Stock Cars were also used - indeed, the ORER
description of the MEC #54000-54014 and #55301-55500
series was "SM - Stock, or Wood & Lumber Racks."
