At times, the car's class code (for example, E, Ge, Dk, Pf, Q, Xa) and cost appear as well. A remarks column is used to note details such as these: "wheel base 9'"; "fit up for horses 4/90"; "iron trucks-Janney couplers"; "Hutchins roof"; "steamheat May "92" and "changed to P.C.& St. L. tool car #3".
