    Brian you are welcome. I was under the impression that cars in interchange service had to be scrapped at forty years, not fifty according to Dan Bigda. I mention this as two passenger conductors told me freight cars were scrapped at forty years, regardless of condition.

    Words fail me in describing how interesting that “Conversations With Brian Solomon” was for me. I learned a lot.
    Thank you,
