post-WW-II rules. The 18/24 hour rules I cited were in effect in
earlier years. 36 hours was ample time for the UP to get stock from
northern Utah to Los Angeles on its Day Livestock Service trains and

without unloading the animals for food/water/rest – regardless of
whether they were in company or foreign-road stock cars.
