Looks like a wreck rebuild (or two, or four...) to me... ;)

WRONG!!!   :D

They only have two of these type of cars. The articulated grain cars and were built for use on the old branch lines in the Canadian grain provinces. For some reason they were not successful.  The one I caught was for grain service. The other one is for potash service.

Why would they do a wreck rebuild for a freight car?   ::)  :D

What the hells the upside to an articulated grain car? So, they drop one truck and don't use two couplers..  :D
