Please direct your questions to the organization in the request. I got this yesterday and was asked to place it on this site as a means to help the organization. I presume there are underlying issues that we're not aware of.

Thanks!

Looks like it is Kirkwood, Missouri (definitely MO, and I did a search on the names listed which all pointed to Kirkwood) in these photos, which may or may not contain the cabooses they are unloading. I see a Missouri-Illinois wood waycar, a BN and a Family Lines steel wide vision, a Frisco steel, and an SP bay window, plus that red thing with the reporting marks painted out, but who knows what they are selling. The M-I car is definitely a rarity.

If these are the ones I think they are, they had been on Ozarks website for several years until the end of last year.... Nobody was buying at the prices then, so now it's a fire sale?

This isn't a good time to break with tradition. Becoming rational at the last minute is SOP.

I don't want to stray the topic as time is of the essence if any of these cabeese gets saved, however I googled Granite City, IL and on the southeast side of town (where the cabeese are im supposing) I ran across a railyard packed with all kinds of passenger cars and even what appears to be a complete Zephyr. I wasn't aware all that stuff was stashed there. Does anyone have info on whats all there and why? Here is the yard zoomed in on the Zephyr https://earth.google.com/web/search/Gra ... GZGhmYUlfA

That’s Gateway Rail Services, a passenger car rebuilder.

Alright - How do we break out of that cycle?
