Hi Armand,

"The Fifties" is a ten year long span of time with a VERY significant marker stuck in about one third of the way through. Are you talking before or after the K-brake ban? Because the numbers will look VERY different.

(Roughly, and ONLY going off of memory here, there were around 40,000 double sheathed cars in 1950, and less than 4,000, mostly all ventilated boxcars or shortline cars, in 1959).
