These are the Lehigh Valley freight car numbers that
became available to me. This list does not necessarily
comprise all of the car types of the 4600 car fleet the
Lehigh Valley had in its final years. With so few cars,
it is a wonder as to how the Lehigh Valley was able to
service its freight customers at all.
