off-hand, were listed in the back of the ORER's in the private
section.)SFRD, IC, NP, BAR, CN & CP reefers were obviously RR owned. ART,
MDT(& NRC) were apparently considered to be RR owned, as the
direct subsidiaries of WAB/MP, SP/UP and NYC. But some MDT-owned
"X" reporting marks: MERX (Merchants Rfr. Line) and ERDX (Eastern
Refrigerator Despatch). On the other hand, New York Despatch Line,
wholly owned by Grand Trunk Western, used NYDX reporting marks until
when the cars were finally re-lettered GTW. It may be that only a
lawyer could explain ARA/AAR policy about this - and then you
whether to believe what he/she told you.
