Per Jul-2022 roster, series 2732-2736 "Wheel cars" had 4 remaining cars. Not registered in UMLER, restricted in interchange, "non-revenue equipment"
Due to Nov-1923 build date, I am assuming this is the correct web page for this info

Car Book and/or Car Disposition Data

Car Books (1923-06 thru 1936-10, then 1944-05 thru 1960-03)

Volume number refers original book number
Part number refers to PDF file part as posted on B&MRRHS site
Page numbers refer to pages in PDF file(s) (L/R = Left or Right side of that PDF page)
NOTE: once cars get renumbered into "company service" (zero + number, or W/M/S numbers), the following actions are my "best guess" as to what happened to the car (due to gaps in records, and the re-use of numbers)
