Couldn't pull 'em until they were all loaded, or they wised up and started loading from switch end.

So when they did load from end to switch, you just wouldn’t pull the track til all were full or did the woodyards start loading from the switch?

Typical. Woodyards always wanted to load from end of track towards switch. Eventually, instructions were not to move partial loads because of the instability of the wood until fully loaded.
