Re: Oregon short line stock cars
To close the circle, here is a roster of CB&Q 40' Stock Cars:
By the late 1950's the CB&Q was already moving on a regular basis Illinois hogs to Tobin Packing in Albany and Rochester NY on the NYC. I have a copy of a presentation Steve Holding did at the Burlington Historical Society meet a few years ago that also showed D&RGW and UP cars being used on the Q for loading hogs in this service.
In 2007, Russ Strodtz posted some switch lists of CB&Q connection cars to the IHB at Congress Park IL. Doug Harding was part of this discussion on the Railway Bull Shippers list. Here are the ones with Hogs:
