Clark,
The gondola in the NMRA Bulletin photo I referenced contained 4 stacks in
what looks to be a 52' gondola. Two stacks of bars are side by side ( 4
tiers high x nine 5x5 bars in one stack and 4 tiers high X seven 5x5 bars).
Each of the two stacks are at the end of the gon over a set of trucks. Wood
bracing is used to keep the stacks seperated and wood 4x4s keep the bars
away from the side of the gon. The bars appear to be approximately 20'
long.

Talk about a picture being worth a 1000 words. If I had a scanner, I'd show
you the photo in question. Good luck building a load. Let me know how it
turns out.
