ORER numerology???

laramielarry <ostresh@...>

Hi Folks

While transcribing the July, 1950, ORER to an Excel file, I noticed
that none* of the "Item" numbers (line numbers) end in 8, 9, or 0.
Rather, the sequence is:


Is this true of other ORERs as well? Does anyone know the reason for
this curious "numerology"? Or its history?

*Actually, there is one occurrence of an 8, the record for a Chicago &
Illinois Western roofless box car.

Best wishes,
Larry Ostresh
