From what I have seen empty cars were not accompanied by a waybill,
but by a card form. Maine Central called them Card Manifest for Empty
Car. The ones I have copies of come in a pad of 8 1/2 by 5 1/4 card
stock and contain all (most?) of the details on the routing of the car
to its home point.
I have uploaded to the file section a copy of an Illinois Central Empty
Car Bill. It is dated possibly a year or two after the cut off for
this group, but is most likely close to what was in use during the time.
