The cast Iron or or steel sewer pipe I saw in the early sixties had plaited straw collars to protect them during transport. Cast Iron is brittle and I don't doubt it could be quite easily chipped and smashed if they swung against each other or against something hard when being lifted by crane off a flatcar or Gon. Even plastic pipe comes with shaped wooden packing strips to stop it rolling around.
