I included the Merchants Despatch cars because some of them received PC
logos even though they had MFVX reporting marks.  All of the four digit
cars series were BLF type flexi-van flat cars which meant that they had
steam lines and were equipped to be handled in passenger trains.  All of
the six digit cars were FC type flexi-van flat cars or freight train only

Subject:  PC: Flexi-Van car numbers...

   Speaking of ORER data, does anyone have the number series of all the
Flexi-Van flat cars that the NYC had and what they were changed to in the
numbering system?  Also, I would like to know the type of cars (i.e. MARK
II, III, etc.).  Thanks...
