Of those 53 cars, 30 were box cars (probably cement in barrels), 20 were in LO’s (one B&O, one HWCX, and the rest UP), and 3 were Gons (CBQ 15366, TNO 61598, and NKP 5371).

    Perhaps it's my lack of imagination, but gondolas of cement are kind of hard to picture. Small nit: T&NO 61598 was a box car, as was NKP 5371 and CBQ 15366.
