A brief background on loading lumber on railroad flatcars - Loading lumber on flatcars and bulkhead flatcars changed in the 1960's from the 1950's. Due to mechanization, forklift trucks, stacks of equal lengths of lumber were piled together, banded and fitted with runners. Each stack or lifts were then loaded on-board the flatcar. Vertical stickers (vertical pieces of wood) were placed at the half-way point on the car to allow the forklift operator to properly load the car. Each lifts were placed in a "brick-like-fashion" and banded together. This allowed more stability during shipment. Interestingly, the loads were not banded or tied to the flatcar itself.
