The build and reweigh dates are bogus and the car numbers are incorrect.
The correct CN car series are as follows:

CN 541660-542059, NSC, 400 cars, built 6-56 and 7-56
CN 542060-542759, ECC, 700 cars, built 5-56 through 7-56
CN 543760-544759, NSC, 1000 cars, built 12-56 through 4-57
CN 544760-545759, ECC, 1000 cars, built 12-56 through 3-57

Craftsman for more information.
