Default Goat Rails

What the heck are the 'Goat Rails' for? Do they help you stay on the roof? Tie stuff off on them? Just a distinctive BB WL feature?...

What else is there on the roof to tie a goat to without the rails? The TV antenna?

Well once upon a time, back in the early days of the Wanderlodge, up in the mountains they did not want to transport the Goats inside for fear they make such a mess and chew the furniture so being that Goats are pretty much fearless with heights...................

The practice was abandoned due to losing too many goats at underpasses and bridges

It's an investment. When the price of aluminum goes sky high, you can sell them and make a lot of money.

I don't know if this is the 'precursor' of our goat rails, but if you've ever noticed buses in some rural areas of other countries, large numbers of people will crowd onto the buses even the roofs. These buses all appear to have some kind of 'goat rails' and sure enough, sometimes their animals travel with the passenges. Of course their baggage and probably frieght travel with the bus and its tied to the rails. Long time ago, when I was in high school, when the football team and band traveled to away games the equipment was attached to roof rails. Those school buses were most likely Bluebirds. (I didn't know about Bluebirds back then - too interested in other things ).
