That data is getting easier to find the more are digitized and put online. In this case, GB&W has a listing in the 1945 Freight Commodity Statistics. For ores and concentrates NOS they bridged 330 tons and handled no other traffic originating, terminating, or local. For products of mines NOS, they handed 12103 tons terminating and 10792 bridge. For aluminum ingot pig or slab, they bridged 157 cars at 7,958 tons and handled no other.
