Re: UP series 10300 to 12499

Not that odd since I was talking about the mid 1960s, not 1940. That's 25 years later. My ORERs only go up to 1959, at which time the OWR&N marks were still in use, but they were diminishing. I was speculating that by 1965 the usage might have ended. I assume a UP expert, which I am not, might know. I understand that the OWR&N was absorbed by the UP around 1936.

Odd comment. My 1940 ORER, for example, shows OWR&N.
