"One of the important lessons (although perhaps a bit overstated) I have taken from the situation in Derby compared to the very quick RBBB dispersal is that up-to-date COTS, recent truck and wheel work etc. is more important than the original fabric of the interior in provoking interest from preservation groups that know what they're doing and can be expected to succeed."

Fixed that for you. >;-)

I'm sure you are right, and there is nothing wrong with said calculation. I find the point of view interesting though, restoring a tubed interior (not all of them, but many) would seem more daunting and open ended than brake and wheel work, but of course I am sure the Derby cars need interior work too. In addition, I'll bet the Class Is would be happier about moving the RBBB cars which were in service and run on Class Is to the end than cars that haven't moved in years, unless they are really confident in whomever preps them to move.

I was told the brake valves and necessary re-working will be done by Pan Am guys.
