Re: Cleaning Stock Cars (was Weathering Chalk)

Kurt & Group,

My understanding is that the capacity for number of animals shown is based upon the space that would take up within the given length stock car. Example: the number of calves is higher than the number of full grown cattle because they are smaller and thus more can be herded into the stock car.

It appears that stock cars loaded with stock tended to be relatively light loaded compared to their load capacity.

Steve, are the capacities listed on the site based on weight, volume, or
common practice incorporating a bit of both? (Conceivably an animal load
could "cube out" because they can't be packed as densely as boxes. . .)
