    Came across this pic from back in 2018 while browsing my photos for a project I'm working on. Zoomed in to check the build date, BLT 11-72 meaning this box is on its last month of riding the rails if it's still in service. That's if my understanding of the life of boxcars or railcars in general is correct. It's that they have 40 years on the rails under rule 90 and the rule 88 extends it to 50 years with proper maintenance.


    well I just learned it could be extended to 65 years



    Units interchange service is prescribed in AAR Interchange Rule 90 and Rule 88. Rule 90 governs the service life for units qualified for forty (40) years of service. Rule 88 governs the units qualified for fifty (50) years of service. In addition, Rule 88 prescribes the standards for units to qualify for Extended Service qualified for fifty (50) years of service and Increased Life Status qualified for sixty-five (65) years of service.

     the 65 years of service would explain the ARMN BLT 03-69 I saw in Kansas City recently. I was tripping off the fact it was in service but now I want to go back and paint some of them grandpa reefers.
