I haven't heard any negative issues from MARC on their multi-level cars from bombardier either. But problems like this will vary wildly based on contract terms and various project stuff. There's lots that can go wrong on one project that has no bearing on another.

Cars 7357, 7360, 7361 has been damaged due to striking a bicycle someone threw on the tracks

I've seen 7438-7439 out and about on OR/SV so I assume they must be around ~7460 at this point

Looks like railcar 7297 is out of commission as it derailed today at the Shady Grove rail yard https://railtransitops.org/2018/01/02/1 ... erailment/
