TESTS OF LUMBER LOADED ON FLAT CARS WITH AND WITHOUT CUSHION UNDERFRAME
Two flat cars, one with and one without cushion underframe, were loaded with lumber identically and coupled back to back. These test cars were run in a train for two trips between Everett and St. Paul. The conditions of the loads were noted at the end of each trip, and the superiority of the cushion underframe car is plainly evident from the test results.
