I think that meens direct connection on BC Electric Lines only. I have seen photos of these cars and most had "BCE" and the number only, no other data that would be required.

The BC Electric Railway entry in the ORER of October 1926 has the notation "Freight cars owned are not employed in Interstate Commerce" however, under the listing of freight and passenger equipment:

"Freight equipment only in switching service with direct connections."

For anyone wishing to move those old soldiers off line in freight service here is a precedent.

The BC Electric in this listing indicated 419 freight cars in service, 184 Plain Box, 12 Stock, 23 gondolas, 178 flats etc.
