Alas, no. GATC's ORER entries consisted, for the most part, of large
number series within which were cars of many different types, sizes,
and builders. GATC was in the habit of renumbering cars whenever
they were re-leased or their assigned service changed. Photos offer
the only real assurance about car numbers; if you don't have photos,
break out your old Ouija board.
