Sorry about the last post. Tapped my touchpad by mistake.

There is no code to NYC's Lot system. The number is the consecutive
order number, one higher than the previous order. The alpha is the type
of car built under the order. Boxcars are "B", hoppers are "H", and so
on. Any more detail requires NYC or builders' records.

<sinp> Designation providing that the code for such classification can
be
easily broken. But I put my foot down on the NYC's Lot system which I
have almost no urge to break that code down into something I can use and

understand.
