Title: Rail Car Conveyor
Author: Niebergall, Ernst
Description: Loaders moved ice blocks onto conveyors like this one. Wingmen waited at the top. Their job was to "wing" ice blocks to stackers and keep the elevator clear. This conveyor was used to load ice blocks directly onto rail cars. Ice dealers in distant cities often took delivery immediately. Their expected loss in transit was 25 percent.
