This day is a quantum move forward. The entire system is to be stressed, and one of the ways is to load the cars past the point of normal passenger weight. Arrangements have been made with the Fiji Water Company to borrow enough cases of it to come to an 8,000 pound load on Olivet — more weight than would ever be possible with a full load of passengers.
A truck arrives with the water one morning, and a bucket brigade is formed to load the water on to Olivet. The water is first loaded and stacked evenly, and then thick plywood spacers are dropped at equidistantly-spaced spots throughout the car to keep the cases from slipping during the tests.
