Was not per diem paid by businesses if they kept the car longer than the
assigned load/unload time?

John that is not per diem it is demurrage and it was based on the car type as
to how many days a car could be on spot or constructively placed before the
"demurrage clock" would begin and end. It was generally a cost based on the car
accounting departments assessment of per diem and some profit, but it was
regulated.
