    It appears that the Frisco would load and ship more than just livestock in a stock car. Utilization of inventory.

    Both my grandfather, William D. Fletcher and great grandfather Wyatt Lawson hand cut, and packed out railroad ties by themselves for sale to the Frisco in Barry County, west of Washburn. Thanks for posting this picture.

    Indeed. I think I’ve seen or read of bricks being shipped via stock car.
