Hi Folks

Here are the DS/SS/Steel splits for Illinois Central box and auto
cars, 1938 to 1950:

IC____Jan-38____Apr-42____Jan-45____Apr-49____Jul-50
DS____4,242____1,435____1,098____153____65
SS____9,561____9,060____9,334____9,026____8,362
Steel____1,801____8,781____8,745____12,465____12,441
Unknown____1,521____1,012____1____0____0
Total____17,125____20,288____19,178____21,644____20,868

IC____Jan-38____Apr-42____Jan-45____Apr-49____Jul-50
DS____24.8%____7.1%____5.7%____0.7%____0.3%

As can be seen, there are a large number of Unknowns in 1938 and
1942. If anyone can tell me the siding type for the following
series, I would greatly appreciate this information. Build or re-
build dates would also be very useful.
