    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!

    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.
