Hi Bob and List Members,
 
Thanks Bob for the terrific image.
 
With respect to dates...
 
* Reweigh dates that are only vaguely discernable on the GN boxcar and the TP&W gon might read 00 - as in 1900
 
* One boxcar is lettered for Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern, which was absorbed in 1903 into the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway
