Canadian General Transit (4/1957-4/1982)
Procor Ltd. (7/1982-1996)
Dow Chemical Canada, Inc. (4/1997-present)

Background

For some reason the CGBX reporting mark has been well travelled, with these cars now with their third owner although the previous two continue to exist. Canadian General Transit had used this reporting mark earlier from the 1950s to the 1970s to handle a small fleet of tank box cars. Reporting mark was added 4/1957, and transferred to Procor in 7/1982.

Data has been taken from the following ORERs (MM/YY): 4/1957, 10/1957-4/1959, 10/1959-4/1961, 10/1961-7/1962, 1/1963, 7/1963, 1/1964-7/1964, 1/1965-10/1965, 4/1966-4/1971, 10/1971-4/1972, 10/1972-1/1973, 7/1973, 1/1974, 1/1979, 7/1979-1/2013, 7/2013-10/2014 & 4/2015-4/2016.
