Re: Freight car distribution

Allen Rueter

Beyond location, location, location, I would look at an annual report, and take a stab
at what cars haul various commodities, and adjust percentages from there.

With out looking it up,
Wabash in 1950
Ag 19%
Mines 32%
Manufactured goods 40%
... 19%
Bridge traffic ~60%

I need more foreign cars.
