Bureau of mines says about 225,000 tons of Aluminum were imported fromTim Gilbert reports to me the footnotes for Canadian data include: "Figures
tonnage handled by class I railways of the United States that operate
mileage in Canada." This should explain why the data I shared was small --
it appears the ICC excluded anything brought across the border by either the
CP or CN. It also raises the question of where did the ICC begin to track
that tonnage? I would guess in the state where the Canadian road turned
over the car to a U.S. carrier.
Canada had something similar to the ICC's Bureau of Statistics -- I have
access to some small portion of their reports and Tim Gilbert says he knows
of a fellow who has much more so perhaps at some future date the full
tonnage figures will be discovered and made available here.
