I noticed them on Track 6 last week, I was wondering why they were there.

Several, perhaps 6, were in a westbound CSX freight train passing through Laurel, Maryland at almost 4:00 this afternoon.

Seven of the SPV's headed south through Ashland, VA on Friday evening 6/8:

Having seen these cars being built at Red Lion and testing on the ex-Reading, glad to see that they are still even around.

The one at DRM that the kid who buys railcars bought is the office car. I don't know if that was #50 or not

no, SPV #50 was scrapped after lingering in Cedar hill for years, the car got wrecked on Danbury when it hit a 5 foot boulder between Branchville and Georgetown.

Former Metro-North SPV car 293 is at the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum, Willimantic, CT. It is in roughly as-built configuration, likely the last one in that condition.
