Loading Sheep

November 08, 2018 12:19PM
I thought I understood how sheep were loaded into a double deck stock car, but one of the cover pictures on the Kalmbach book, Livestock and Meatpacking, has me wondering. It shows sheep being loaded into D&RGW double deck cars in Silverton. In the picture, which is repeated on p.72, sheep are only being loaded into the upper deck. Surely they used both decks. Did they typically load them one deck at a time or was it all at once. All at once makes more sense to me since there is only one door per side for both decks. Someone explain this to me, please.
