Railroad-Owned Poultry Cars
According to the book, Car Shop Practice, from the Board of Railway Mechanical Officials and the Railway Training Institute (published in 1925), there were 24 railroad-owned poultry cars in service in 1924.
Does anyone have a 1924 ORER that would tell us which railroads owned these poultry cars?
Four poultry cars were listed by Canadian roads in 1924, apparently all converted from other cars circa 1923:

CN 149900-149901
CP 259000-259001

CP would add four more cars in the mid-1930s (CP 259100-259103, which were renumbered 272200-272203 in 1947).
