Some railroads may not have a large enough total roster to be included in a list of the top boxcar owners. However, some classes/types of boxcars on those smaller roads may be big enough to be within my cut off percentage of 1/2% (3500 cars) of the national fleet. Whether or not this is the case, the research will tell.
