That is much more healpful, I have followed this group for many years and I would have only known to search for routing. But I'll look at the other listings as well.

The thing is, it has been discussed repeatedly so it is all over the archives… not in just one location. For starters, if you want to try to find the information, search “Boxcar distribution” or “Nelson Gilbert”. Pull up a chair and a beverage…

I think it is more helpful to guide new members to the discussion rather than be so rude as to tell someone it was discussed years ago, and not tell them where!

A B&M boxcar in Seattle or LA doesn’t mean the contents were from an industry on the B&M.

Boxcars were quite free roaming as has been discussed on the list for years.

I've seen pics of BAR and B&M boxcars in LA and Seattle. Stuck in my mind as always wondered what would be shipped from corner to corner of the US like that. They may have been WWII photos, but can't recall for sure.
