Andy Laurent and I just published a blog post with an Ontario Northland box car delivering newsprint to a local Wisconsin newspaper publisher. Those interested can find the post at:

The 1% carload sample shows that this is the one commodity for which shipments originating in Canada outnumbered shipments originating in the U.S. during the 1950s. The destinations were national in scope, providing a good opportunity to feature Canadian box cars in almost any U.S. geographic setting on a fairly regular basis.
