Do you have any data showing which cars arrived loaded and which were
supplied by ATSF or SP for lumber loading?

I have some AAR "Empty Freight Cars on Hand" data which wastabulated twice
a month...on the 15th and on the 31st. I wish I had more but what Ihave is
for the period December 31, 1936 through March 31, 1937. The emptycars on
hand on those reporting dates were:cars from
western roads (ATSF, SP, etc.) and 20 non-western railroad carsmeaning 77%
of the empty cars on hand on those dates were from western roads.The
"other" box cars could have included NYC and anything else...thosemight
have been in proportion to the national fleet. The Other* carswould have
included tank cars (most likely ULTX), refrigerator cars (PFE,Santa Fe),
and other types of cars.
