An accumulating conveyor system for transporting and storing plural loads, formed of a pair of laterally spaced parallel lines of non-powered rollers and an intervening load advancing car reciprocative along advance and return strokes between the ends of the roller lines. The load advancing car has a load advancing friction pad movable vertically from a raised load engaging position to a retracted inactive position under control of a monitor wheel which also moves vertically, to retract the pad from load engaging position responsive to contact of the wheel with loads along the lines of rollers.
