Ray, this is starting to feel comical. Are we looking at the same
July 1950 Official Railway Equipment Register??

The "Total" listed in my copy is 53,640 cars. If I add up the tallies
of cars in your list below, I get 53,640.

So how did you get 56,516???

Anyway, the 7/1950 ORER says that the IC had a total of 56,516 cars, broken down into
the following general categories:

X - 20,868
G - 6939 (the recapitulation in back says 6937)
H - 20,581
S - 1100
LO - 476
LP - 1161
F - 1498
R - 1017
