The 1947 and 1948 CB&Q ORER's listed 40 box cars U.S.A. #24167-24210. The footnote stated "individual numbers of cars marked "U.S.A." operated under lease by C., B. & Q. R. R.. These cars are not included in total of C., B. & Q." and then it listed 24167, 24169-24182, 24184-24188, 24190-24195, and 24197-24210. The cars were 36' 6" inside length so they were certainly not CB&Q cars.
It is believed that these were listed solely to enable them to be used in interchange rather than being an actual lease.
