Re: Somewhat off-topic steam era historical inquiry

Hi Ron,

Ladder cages weren't mandatory as they are now, but I've seen examples of them in photos dating back to the late 1930s, at least, including some examples on railroad structures. They aren't wrong in the steam era, just not as common as today.

So long,

Andy
