I could be wrong but as I recall that "white stuff" on CP and CN stock car sides was lime or something similar and meant to disinfect the car interiors from animal manure. Likely used in the USA as well.

What is the white stuff on the sides of CP and/or CN stock cars?
Why was it used?
Did any US roads follow a similar practice?
