Re: Pipe loads on the cheap - Drill Pipe

What is the typical diameter of drill pipe?
--------------------------------------------------
3 1/2" to 6 1/4" depending on exact usage -- depth and needed "drill"
(torsional) strength. Within certain limitations, a load of drill pipe would not
appear to be much different from (different than) a load of steam locomotive
flue stock; -- fire tubes or Superheater jackets.

Thanks Mal. In that case, the photo link to the gondola loaded
with pipes must not be drill pipe. If a gondola is 9' (108") wide
and you can see about 10-11 pipes from side to side, then those
pipes must be over 8" in diameter...
