I have a database for feight car classes you may find useful. I put it together several years ago in an effort to be able to correlate published or available photos with classes so I could know when I was looking at a photo that would be of use for a particular project.

Please do not ask for something other than the two formats just listed; there's a limit.

In this vein, I would appreciate getting specific information on car classes for roads I am missing, which includes CB&Q and Seaboard, among others. BTW, the DB is specific to January, 1953, using the NMRA reprint of the ORER as a basis. It includes NYC, PRR, SP, UP, some CB&Q, ATSF, B&O, ...
