RE: (erielack) Erie Airslides



All carbon black shipments that I have ever delet with
where in privately owned/leased cars. I have not seen
any railroad owned cars in this service. This does not
mean it did not happen, just in the areas where I have
worked and we serviced carbon black plants their was
no railroad own cars assigned to that service.
