agreed, they are good. Btw, the car seen behind the well car with the 53' foot container above the 48' one is an old passenger car that has been converted for use as an office (since it was damaged in an accident and was deemed no longer safe for use by passengers as a result of this accident).

I read an article about old New york city subway cars being taken onto a ferry... brought out to the middle of the river, then thrown overboard as a reef Very Happy. What better way to re-use the train cars right?

the only other thing done is sending them to be recycled at a rolling mill, where they are turned into new car parts.
