It has been the policy of the Rules and Figures Subcommittee to assign new figure numbers, as near as possible,
to the same "family" of commodities. In this particular instance the loading involves a "TOFC" type car with retractable
hitches and it was thought advisable to differentiate hereafter in the assignment of figure numbers as between this type
car and the so-called conventional type flat car. Therefore, henceforth, all loading on "TOFC" flat cars equipped with
retractable hitches will be grouped under Fig. Nos. 200 to 299 inclusive, and loads on multilevel cars will be grouped
under Fig. Nos. 300 to 399 inclusive, this numbering arrangement to be applicable to Section Nos. 2 to 6 inclusive.
