for the railroads to use at some level, for them to spend the money, go to
the trouble of making their own codes for tonnage and/or size.
They would of only done this to save them selves money, or customer demand.
I don't know Harriman code groups (third part) at all, do they convey
any type of size? or is it more random, ie assigned the next number
