This is a link to a Southern Pacific photo in USC's digital archive
collection at: http://digarc.usc.edu/search/controller/index.htm .

Are they similar cars? The outside posts don't seem to be exactly
the same plus on the beet car they\ posts are pared because they are
actually door frames. The car hauling sheep does not have the top
mounted rods running the length of the car. But I don't know. Maybe
the sheep car is some kind of earlier beet car.
