I would say "uo" was to be "up" as in above the actual number and not
the railroad. And car makes sense in the sentence.

The impetus was to have accuracy only on the uo side. It
was necessary that any cay that might handle revenue traffic
be listed, but not that every car listed be in service, or
even exist.

Entirely true. At some point the ORER was legally made part of
the tariff structure, thus giving an impetus for reporting to be as
accurate as possible--maybe in that 1912-1913 time frame.
