OPEN LOAD TIE DOWNS

WILLIAM PARDIE
 


In a discussion last week magnet wire was mentioned as a good candidate for tie downs on open loads  Does anyone have a source for small quantities for this item?  The spools that I see would last till the next milainium.

A quick scan of the hard drive shows ACL, ATSF, BAR, BN, CN, CG, CP, D&H, DTI, EL, GN,
HS, LV, MILW, MONON, MP, N&W, NS, OAR, PC, PRR, RI, SAL, SCL, SOU, TH&B, UP, and WABASH
all had box cars with roof hatches.

And that's not a complete list. Tony mentioned the SP, too.

Boxcar With Roof Hatches

I've seen a few photos of boxcars with roof hatches for loading such commodities as aluminum dross, cement, various clays, lime and spent grain.

All of the photos I've seen are associated with shippers in the Southeast and Midwest.

Would such boxcars have served shippers in the Southwest to any degree?

Thanks.

Sources of magnet wire in small quantities include:
Motors with the magic smoke escaped.
That switch machine that just quit working.
Any kind of electric coil at the bottom of your junk box.
Most of these are available at LOW cost.

The CG cars didn’t get roof hatches till after the 1963 takeover by Southern, well past the era of this group’s time era.
