Subject: [STMFC] USRA G.E.T stenciled boxcars

I was reading RPC 17 last night, another fine volume Ed and Pat, and
it got me thinking about the cars that were lettered G.E.T. Were these
cars in revenue service in this scheme. Who was responsible for
repairs, utilization, per diem etc. Did the USRA have a car/traffic
department set up for these cars? I model the 50's so I don't have any
references from the appropriate time period, just wonder how this was
