Oh...if you can come up with the number of Archer rivets
on the car, you get a Get Out of Jail Free card.

I hope I don't ever have to use a "get out of jail free" card, but my guess is 110 per side, for a total of 220. Close?

As to the question mark, I sorted through my "archives" and found the original waybill commemorating the event - it was really in Buford to drop off a Harley for the station agent:

Actually, I'm trying to learn about the "Stop this Car" portion of a waybill, and I was wondering if anyone might comment on whether this feature was commonly used or if it was more of an oddball/oddity/special case. I'm trying to decide whether to incorporate that section in my model waybill form, but unless it was a real staple of prototype operations I think I'd prefer to keep it simple.

Thanks and Regards,
