Re: freight car distribution - rejecting the equal distribution hypo

Cyril, I like your approach, but two comment/questions.

> 3. If we can show that in 1910 the non home box cars are distributed by national roster

Has anyone ever done this ? BC of course.

> 25% from the national fleet based roughly on the percentage of their car fleet. The split of model SP Lines box, flat and gondola cars was based on the percentage of each type of car on the roster at that time and the road names.

Does it really make sense to you that any one SP&S or DSS&A or BAR or FEC car would be as likelto get to your railroad as a car from T&NO or IGN or any other railroad that got near Houston ?
