Tim,
These are mostly cars passing through, between the WP & GN at
Bieber.
There is one with out train info. You sort of have to know your
GN & WP steam engine numbers to help make sense of it.

The station book is organized by the last 3 digits of the car number.
The station agent(s) seem to be rather loose with there
abbreviations, like rg for rio grande, at for atsf, rd for reading,
mi for Milw (with out looking at an ORER)

So taking a line for example,

ic 32200 r 2126 10/4 f 907 907 10/4

ic car # 32200 received from train 2126(gn) 10/4/47 forwarded to
train 907(wp) 10/4/47

Some entries have multiple train/dates meaning the car past through
several times in three months. I repeat the whole entry for each
new train + date
I imported the data into excel, sorted by roadname and was blown away
by the number of Rg (reading) entries. Then I realized that it was
only 2 cars! Can you provide some interpretation of those movements
(especially their direction of travel)??

rg 43300 r 2126 19-Dec f 202 20-Dec
rg 43300 r 904 30-Dec f 2126 30-Dec

a couple of ATSF cars account for multiple moves as well

at 9200 r 210 11-Oct f 2019 11-Oct
at 9200 r 254 10-Nov f 2008 10-Nov
at 9200 r 2107 20-Nov f 206 20-Nov

at 5300 r 2115 14-Oct f 209 14-Oct
at 5300 r 905 24-Nov f 2127 24-Nov
at 5300 r 2007 5-Dec f 206 6-Dec

I'd be curious to see how these cars comply with the car service rules.

It looks like a nice national mix of cars <VBG>

BTW, if Rg is Reading, what is Rd?
