I model 1947, but the 1950 ORER is a good stand-in. Your 1957 data would be too far out for me. I'm heartened to hear that someone else thought it was a good idea! I'll get going on the counts for 1950.

Mike: That someone was me and I have the data for all the Large Steam RR's
from the ICC Bluebook, and some selected (I.e. Ones that interested me)
smaller railroads from the July 1957 ORER. I did as you described looking at
the railroad (or region first) then looking at each class. In my case I have
not been able to fine wheel reports, switch lists or other primary souce
material for my prototype, so I used the Nelson Gilbert theory to distribute
the boxcars as the basis for my fleet.
If you model 1950 your data would be different.
