An interesting chart. If nothing else, it reinforces the idea that today's boxcar is the 53' container....
"Flat cars" must include deep-well cars for containers, and they are counting cars instead of platforms. I'm surprised the gondola number is so high. I sure don't see that percentage in the trains around here.
