- Completely updated and expanded the AAR Reporting
Marks Section of the website. This update was made possible by
IHS Rail Resource, publishers
Official Railway Equipment Register (ORER) who provided us with a copy
of the current issue of ORER. Without the assistance of IHS Rail Resource
and ORER it would be literally impossible for us keep this listing of AAR
reporting marks current. With this update, the listing of current and historical
reporting marks and railroad abbreviations now totals more than 12,850
entries which is by far the most complete listing available on the Internet.
- Added a photograph of the former Carolina and North-Western foreman's house at Edgemont .

- Completely updated the listing of AAR reporting marks through April 1, 2014.
A huge number of new marks and reassigned marks were added. NOTE: That not all AAR marks appear because many
are not used in interchange service or, in some cases, the owners of the marks do not list them
in the Official Railway Equipment Register or other sources.
