Al,

Thank you very much.



Correction on SAL 7040, should of been 7940 ( 7600-7999, P-S '52-
53.)



With fewer covered hoppers in 1950, would this traffic have been
shipped, bagged in box cars?

I don't know, but that would be my guess too. Like cement, fertilizer
is damaged by any water leakage into the car; so it would be an early
candidate for shipment in covered hoppers as they became available.
