I have a chart that depicts loads comparing trucks, trains, and barges. Depending upon the size of the barge, I have seen them loaded with approx. 250 containers (intermodal).

Good call on the definition of Hispanic. From the reading I have done there is/was a large class division within the "Spaniards" themselves. The two remaining divisions in Louisiana are Creole and Quadroon (I might not have the correct spelling) which I think is now considered a derogatory term. I was told by a Cajun friend that the former was Spanish/Indian/African mix and the latter was Spanish/African. I don't know that he was correct.

I don't recall a Filipino community but there was an extremely large Vietnamese community (my guys even got shot at down there).
