hokie71; It's worth mentioning that my operation is all DCS, TMCC, Legacy. So in this scenario the siding UCS's are useless as all yard car placement is done with an, umm, uh, switcher(?). In a non-command scenario they would likely be very handy, and of course in 1998 I was all conventional operation. If there is ever a need or reason to tear up track in my yards, the USC's will be gone for sure. The ones out in the switching/make up area will remain because they get used quite a bit, and there are several dump cars that the grandkids like to operate in that area also. Well, ok, so do I.
