RECOMMENDED APPLICATIONS OF SOLID FIBREBOARD GRAIN DOORS IN CLOSED CARS

This new publication, General Information Series No. 547, augments Closed Carload Pamphlet 36--Grain and Other Bulk Commodities. The purpose is to describe application of fiber grain doors in 6- and 7-ft doorway openings. The methods described, when they have received recognition throughout the industry, will probably be included in Pamphlet 36. Since the intent is to provide safe loading methods, it is desired that inspections of emptied cars be made in order that any problems might be detected.
