Staffan-
You posed an interesting little research project. Some listings are
interpretations of Conductor's handwritings (so there's some room for
error). Even though there are 32 cars listed below, I thought other
members might like to see the list. It is arranged chronologically.
All cars are 40' long except where noted. As indicated, there were
no empties. Most destinations are indicated, but origins are unknown.
