consolidated and then for furtherance and was the case for all the
railroads in the study.
Given the size of PRR and the size of its car fleet, I'd guess
that PRR handled more carloads of practically everything than anyone
else, maybe excepting coal.
I'd still like a mention of which TKM this appeared in.
