Reply to "Extremely large numberr of freight car retirements between 2016 and 2020."

The cars built in the past 60 years have a 50 year INTERCHANGE life span before being overhauled.

There were a lot of box cars built in the 1970's and 1980s' that must have been overhauled, stored somewhere, or dismantled somewhere.

There are now a large number of TTX high-cube 60' box cars and many new high-cube 50' box cars.

Half of the tank cars appear to have been rebuilt or replaced.
