Why so many single stacked containers, then suddenly, a few double stacks?  Wouldn't they load the train uniformly in the yard, with double stacks stopping at some point when container count  got low??

i believe that placing another container on top of these single stacks would exceed the weight restrictions of the well cars.  apparently, some of those single stacked or 2 20' containers are pretty heavy as ag products (grain, etc.) are also shipped in them..........

See on this site:   Why is BNSF wasting so many well cars?

These are great videos and I appreciate seeing the entire train. As a model railroader, it's all great prototype information...
