" After World War II, at least for auto parts, the pool arrangements were in
the form of written contracts and numbers of dedicated cars from each pool
contributor were specified. It wasn't exactly being "asked to contribute" in
that case. But other pools may have been less formal, as were even the auto
parts pools before WW II."

And your right Tony it was not as polite as I make it seems but again I deal
with these guys every day and I guess I would like negotiations like these
to be more polite... but they're not. Car hire, lost car days, reload on
spot... Yuck!

On PRR cars during the 50's, and I am sure Tony is very aware of this, the
pool numbers were painted on the PRR cars...
