retired Bi-level Metra Cars in Cadilac MI?

Whole slew of them just north of town in the GLC yard, appear to be ex-CB&Q Budd Gallery cars, rd lettered PMIX ?
I'm thinking either cheapo transit district, tourista operation or maybe just sitting on them?
Anyone know what's going on with this?

They're / were for Michigan's proposed MiTrain, an Ann Arbor to Detroit "commuter" service. 23 cars (7 cabs and 16 coaches) were refurbished by the Great Lakes Central Railroad (GLC).
