Re: construction pipes


Well, looks like some of the links don't work.

Go to Library of Congress photos and search for photos with railroad and pipe. You will get many photos unrelated to this discussions but several gems. The one at the bottom show a truck unloading pipe from a gondola - a scene I plan on modeling on a house track.

The late 40s and early 50s were the time when a lot of pipe lines were being built and pipe was taken to even the most remote little station.

Aren't lot of these construction pipes (like the vitreous clay pipes)
a lot shorter than 40 feet?

Wouldn't at least some of them be loaded in gondolas?

I'm guessing that they are too heavy for a man to lift (steal) by
