Yes, a small portion of the data is illegible, but most is clear. With a
sample this large, I think overall the data will be good. If something
doesn't look right, I'll throw it out.

Since we both looked at the same list, I would urge you to caution.

For example, as we discussed at the CVRHS convention, I was looking for
hoppers that appeared on the CV and was searching the train lists for cars
with the designation "H".

Of the car numbers I copied from the list with the designation "H", I've
found from some of the numbers I've checked that they were covered
as in the example of NH 117007, designated "H" on the trainlist, but
from the ORER and photographic evidence, a covered hopper.

Godspeed, but proceed with caution.
