Happy New Year Everyone ...

"Can anyone identify the road name for the car whose end we see prominently in this photo?"

IRC 61973-62345

1912[9]-1913[1]   373  Fowler/Dominion pattern cars BLT by Nova Scotia Car Co, Halifax, NS.

1913(1) ORER states: "The freight cars of this Railway are marked Intercolonial Canada." "Intercolonial Railway of Canada," and Initialled "I.C.R," [being changed to I.R.C],..."

1915(9) ORER states: Reporting Marks—“ I R C ”  The freight cars are
marked “lntercolonial Canada." “Intercolonial Railway of Canada." and initialed “I. C. R.” [being changed to I. R. C.], and “C. G. R." ..."

1919(12) ORER lists 370 cars in 61973-62345. So, on the verge of the photo date only a few had been lost and #62231 in the photo was one of those re-marked to IRC marks.

1922[1] Begin RENO into CN 378279-378643.
