I'm getting confused..... Early on in this thread mention was made of
Bill Schaumberg's clinic on tie treatment plants, wherein lumber is
pressure treated with creosote _before_ it is put to use. I took that
to mean the question was whether flat car decking was similiarly pre-
treated, not whether AC&F (or any other car builder or railroad) was
coating the decking after (or when) it was applied to the car. Do the
BOMs say anything about the deck planks, Pat??
