It seems that nearly every principal "town" on the Sandy River had both a passenger depot and a freight depot. Some were combined (Phillips) with some separate (Strong).
Questions: What kind of cars were used for the LCL shipments from the freight depots? I don't recall seeing a photo of a boxcar parked on a siding near a freight depot. Does that infer that passenger cars were used to transport LCL traffic, perhaps with loading done via a baggage cart when the train arrived? I assume railcars were treated in a similar fashion?
