Summary: This photograph shows an unidentified Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company's circus loading facility. The term "circus loading" is used to describe an older method of moving trailers on to flatcars, (TOFC), whereby a truck backs the trailer up to a ramp placed at one end of a cut of cars. The loading process requires bridge plates to be at each end of all the cars to enable the trailer and tractor to pass from car to car.
