That's just from my vague recollections of the 1950's, not seeing any Canadian rail cars here in Louisiana.

I recommend you get a copy of the ORER for the year of your focus or the year before. Compile some fleet numbers and check what older cars are still running. The 1953 K brake ban sent lots of freight cars to scrap.
And I would not ignore the Canadian box car fleet. Newsprint from Canada was used all over.
