These cars have heavier gauge wiring and are typically used to haul around flat cars (in between two pairs of work motors) carrying MOW equipment. When they're not being used in work service, they operate as regular revenue cars.Ahhh...I did not know that about the candy stripes.
The reason I questioned ownership is the 3446x2577 version of that photo show a K/R logo and number and similar numbers on the cars. Anybody know the story there? I thought the CTA used S-xx numbers on the mow equipment and "regular" 4 axle flat cars built to the loading gauge.
