Re: GN frt cars in interchange

The following GN cars from Monon conductors logs from mid 1948 to early 1950.  This information only as far as it concerned the work for that day.  Most final destinations are unknown.  I have included interchanges for the pick-up and destination stations listed.  I know the car was left at that station but not if it was interchanged or sent to a local industry. 
Date, Train, Road, Type, Number, Contents, Picked Up, Left, Destination.
8/10/48 Train X26N GN flat #66143 “tank” load picked up Ladoga IN, left Lafayette IN, dest Chicago.

I intend to try and do a clinic on Great Northern freight cars in
interchange and would love to hear samples of GN cars shown to be
on "foreign"roads. I would appreciate receiveing info on the GN car
number, location or in a train headed where from where? Info on what
the load was, perhaps even where originated and where bound for, if
applicable, would be "icing on the cake". If my e-mail can't be deduced
from the posting it is staffan dot ehnbom at telia dot com.
