DS____2,508____1,159____1,067____269____205
SS____5,978____5,198____5,144____4,221____3,541
Steel____701____2,422____2,566____3,815____4,789
Unknown____40____40____0____0____0
Total____9,227____8,819____8,777____8,305____8,535

GTW____Jan-38____Apr-42____Jan-45____Apr-49____Jul-50

The 40 Unknowns in 1938 and 1942 are believed to be steel rebuilds of
USRA DS cars.

Thanks to Ian Cranston for his help in compiling the 1938 data.
Thanks also to Al Brown for his help in identifying sheathing for
series in the other ORERs.

Best wishes,
