Cheyenne, WY, 2004 or so:
NS MOW - Probably semi permanently attached to the flats. Dallas GA
D&RGW did something similar, BNSF FAN. In the mid-80s, they stopped using old WWII troop cars for MOW service and went to this modular concept you posted. I'm sure there's more creature comforts in these than the old steel cars!
This article is an interesting commentary on these cars, from both the union's and management's perspectives.
I wonder if those trucks are heading to remanufacture or scrapping?
Very interesting indeed. I think it's interesting how NS wants to keep using them, but railroads in really remote regions, such as class 1s in ND, MT, WY, SD and other remote states can get by with hotels.
6 years ago 50 km west of Montreal, QC : a truckless GP38-2 riding on a flatcar..
And finally, on the very same train, a little bit further down...
WOW, I didn't realize Bachmann shipped E-Z Track by rail.
