Re: flat cars (was B&O P-11 30.10 etc)

Tim,

I have tallied the entries in the January 45 ORER by car type and for box/auto cars length in an Excel sheet. When I saw Bruce's post with 1953 data, I filtered the top 20 and didn't find several roads on the later data. I expanded to the top 30 for my post. Aside from the decline in PRR flats, the other major difference is I used a North America data set where Bruce's was US only, hence CN, CP, & NdeM as major owners in 45.

Combining John Barry's list and Bruce Smith's
list

==================================================


Many railroads show remarkable declines 1945 to 1951,
and only
THREE

show increases. The Southern Pacific (postwar construction
boom and
high

demand for lumber products) and IC and L&N - perhaps
reflecting
increased

pulpwood for paper production in their territory?


Are these numbers correct? Do the NP numbers include their
large fleet
of

skeleton log flats? Why are some roads not listed in the
1951
totals?
