IIRC, there's some sort of rule that freight cars can only be used
for so many years. 25 comes to mind. After that, they must be retired
or heavily rebuilt. If this is correct, then we'll only be seeing PC
cars for another 3 years or so, because we're coming up on the 25th
anniversary of Conrail in 2001. The assumption is that, if a car is
heavily rebuilt, it will be repainted. Of course, non-interchange
equipment is exempt.
Can anyone verify what I remember?
