It seems clear from the 1949 Fraley data that box car populations of SP,Mike, Mike, Mike...
What we find is these numbers in the trains that Fraley recorded. Wasn't Fraley working the extra board at this point? So while he might have gotten some "regular" trains as a substitute, he more than likely did not get a uniform sample. Since he did not record every train the sampling is flawed and cannot be used to make generalizations.
I don't, however,I don't know - I plan to have on UP gon on the line since I bought it before I had to pay royalties on it.
