 Occasionally while unloading a car you would come to a layer of craft paper, at which point you would close the door and reseal it. Or you would open one up and there would be a partial load with the paper on top - LCL.
Just a slight correction. Technically, this isn't LCL. LCL is when multiple SHIPPERS have small loads in the same car. In the case of this carload of lumber, it's one shipper serving multiple customers under the tariff provisions that allowed multiple consignees.

Therefore, for the numbers crunchers, these cars will be counted as full carloads of lumber (which they are) not LCL.
