I don't collect line pairs or plate number coils, but ... there is a 2132a (Stanley Steamer, precanceled & untagged, type I) that does have a line as well as a plate number. You only show 2132 (tagged type I).
Added: Just found one more ... 2128a (untagged precanceled ambulance).
If you aren't interested in the minor tagging or precancel varieties, the two above items may not be of interest.

Stampfan9, here is the list.
Please note, the Transportation was printed by three sets of presses mainly - the Cottrells, the B press and the C, D presses. Of these only the stamps printed on the Cottrells show a joint- or seam line even though some collectors still call a pair with the plate number on the left side a "line pair". Also, when we identify a coil stamp we count from the sometimes imaginary line either left or right, like 1L or 5R.

1897 1 cent Omnibus plates 1&2, 3&4 and 5&6
1897A 2 cent Locomotive 2&6, 3&4 and 8&10
1898 3 cent Handcar 1&2 and 3&4
2123 3.4 cent School Bus 1&2
2123a 3.4 cent School Bus precancel 1&2
1898A 4 cent Stagecoach 1&2, 3&4 and 5&6
1898Ab 4 cent Stagecoach precancel 3&4 and 5&6
2124 4.9 cent Buckboard 3&4
2124a 4.9 cent Buckboard precancel 1&2, 3&4 and 5&6
1899 5 cent Motorcycle 1&2 and 3&4
1900 5.2 cent Sleigh 1&2 and 3&5
1900a 5.2 cent Sleigh precancel 1&2, 3&5 and 4&6
1901 5.9 cent Bicycle 3&4
1901a 5.9 cent Bicycle precancel 3&4 and 5&6
2128 8.3 cent Ambulance 1&2
2128a 8.3 cent Ambulance precancel 1&2 and 3&4
1903 9.3 cent Mail Wagon 1&2, 3&4 and 5&6
1903a 9.3 cent Mail Wagon precancel 1&2, 2&4, 3&4, 4&8 and 5&6
1904 10.9 cent Hansom Cab 1&2
1904a 10.9 cent Hansom Cab precancel 1&2 and 3&4
2131 11 cent Stutz Bearcat 1&2 and 3&4
2132 12 cent Stanley Steamer 1&2
2132a 12 cent Stanley Steamer precancel 1&2
2134 14 cent Ice Boat 1&2 and 3&4
1906 17 cent Electric Auto 1&2, 3&4, 5&6 and 5&7
1906a 17 cent Electric Auto precancel type A 3&4, 5&6 and 5&7
type B 3&4 and 5&6
type BA 5&6
type C 1&2, 3&4 and 5&7
1907 18 cent Surrey 1&2, 2&8, 3&4, 5&6, 7&8, 9&10, 11&12, 13&14, 15&16 and 17&18
1908 20 cent Fire Pumper 1&2, 1&5, 3&4, 5&6, 5&13, 7&8, 9&10, 11&13, 12&14 and 15&16

The first column is of course the Scott number.
The last column is the plate number possible on the stamps. On the Cottrell press two plates were used per roll of stamps.
Hope this list helps you out - I don't believe I forgot anything!

Peter... you have an obvious typo on your list. 1908a should read 1906a. The rest of the numbers look good to me.

Thank you John. When I make a list like that my age is starting to show and the difference between a six and an eight goes away!

John, Peter, thanks for the wonderful information. Peter your much appreciated list is a bit intimidating but the work to come in paring it down should be fun.

Robert ... To simplify your chore, just note that Peter's list has 28 different catalogue numbers. Your photo has 18 items, all of which are major tagged varieties. So you're really only missing 10 items, all of which are minor untagged (and precanceled) varieties. Just look for those items in Peter's list that have lower case letters in their catalogue numbers!
Added: Note that I have assumed that you are not interested in all the different plate numbers. If you decide to start collecting all the plate numbers as well, then you really do have a lot of work to do. Good luck!

John, thanks for the guidance. Peter's list, as is will be going into my modern series binder with the hope that upon my death one of my family will continue the collection to completion. That would be awesome. Go Dawgs!
Robert

Those were the pairings of the plates. Someone sent me an email wanting the plate pairings on the Transportation Coils and I figured this would be a good way to combine two requests,
