Metra Electric Highliners

Recommended Posts

The original plan was to keep 4-6 old Highliners for work service. However, with the federal insistence on PTC, they scrapped

the idea because it would have been too costly to outfit the cars with the equipment (or so they say). I don't think there is a "plan"

for the old stuff. They can't sell them due to asbestos, but they haven't seemed to figure that out yet. They probably should

have been junked by now, but they just seem to hang around.

Wow I had no idea they had asbestos.... sad they couldn't use them

Also rusted hulks. They were the last acquired cars that weren't stainless steel (discounting reacquired C&NW cars).
