I like the d20 method. If you roll a 20, pull the aluminum reefer out of its box, put it on the layout for that session, then put it back in the box at the end of the day. Next time you roll a 20, pull out the UP ARA box, or the RF&P stock car.
Exactly, a sound approach. But I would be pulling out that MNS box car, or Crystal Car Lines red tank car, or the General Electric covered hopper, all of which are representatives of small fleets of cars but are by no means unique or two-of-a-kind.
