I have a slide showing PC 5956 switching loaded Flexi-Van flats in Chicago
during 1973. The first Flexi-Van container is a pure Pennsy side-door van
with "POCU" reporting marks in red lettering on a white background. It's
possible that the "POCU" reporting marks weren't utilized until the mid
1970's and therefore wouldn't be listed in 1970 registers.

The marks "POCU" do not exist in the Feb 1970 Intermodal Register. I don't
have any later editions to check.
