Re: Odd or Even Numbers Only for Rolling Stock?

It was an easy to check for misplaced cars. As an example, the Soo Line, which used the odd/even system for a good portion of the twentieth century, had two main businesses; grain, and iron ore. Boxcars were numbered with even numbers only, open top cars with odd numbers. If there was an even number in a track list of the ore yard, it was a good bet something was out of place.
