d. You will have to refer to the appendix where extracts of outloading drawing 5PA 1002 are
located as you take this part of the lesson.
4. Turn to the appropriate page number of the outloading drawing as the following information is
a. Page 85 contains an itemized index chart that breaks down every item covered in this drawing by
load, type, and page number.
b. Page 2 contains general notes and material specification information. These general notes are
referred to throughout the drawing. Pay attention to general note "L" as it states that the loads shown are
typical and that actual quantity that is to be shipped will not be depicted in any of the loading
c. Page 3 contains several typical palletized units that are used throughout the drawing.
d. Page 4 contains general notes for conventional type box cars to include weight distribution chart.
e. Page 5 contains special notes and load planning guidance for conventional box cars. Chart
number 1 may be used in selecting a load pattern, such as 2-wide or 3-wide for the width of the car
which is to be loaded. Chart number 2 may be used in determining the quantity of units which can be
positioned within the length of a car. Chart number 3 may be used in determining the number of tiers
which can be loaded in a car, based only upon the height of the unit. Chart number 4 may be used as
guidance in determining the quantity of units which can be loaded in a car, based only upon the weight
of the unit.
f. Pages 6 thru 9 contain typical 2-wide load in a 50 foot long by 9 foot 2 inches wide conventional
box car to include special notes, bill of material charts, isometric views and key numbers all of which
contribute to proper blocking and bracing techniques. Care must be used when reading the special notes
and key numbers because they give the necessary instructions on the positioning of the units (pallets) in
the box car. They
