Look, if Doyle McCormack could rebuild his PA1 with what he had to work with, this FA1 can be rebuilt. If you can afford the steel, the carbody can be rebuilt. And this happens to be an outstanding "save" to start from.

This photo was posted by Richard Werner, Jr. on the Anthracite Railroads Historical Society facebook page on Tuesday, with this caption: "Ex- EL RR Comet coaches that Septa bought years ago from NJT during an equipment shortage are finally being cut up behind SEPTA’s Roberts Yard, Philadelphia, Pa this week. " But you will notice that the FA is still there too. Hopefully the supposed new owner was just given some time to remove it.
