C&O ran large numbers of NRBX (the other Berwind, New River Berwind)
on its main to Newport News. IIRC, these were also loaded at coal mines
served by the C&O, not off line mines. Would NRBX be considered
"foreign"?, Or are private owner cars not included in that category?

The concept of system and foreign cars applied only to railroad owned cars. Private cars were not included.
