Hello: In going through a B&M freight conductors wheel report dated Jun 1920, I ran into a reporting mark GET. I know that represents an unassigned USRA owned freight car. In this case I found two of them, both boxcars in the same train. The first was GET 2139 carrying boxes. The other was GET 21100 and it was carrying ice. I didn't think GET cars would show up in revenue service. Could anyone clarify this for me? Thanks, Al Campbell
