It was like a bar code for a railroad car!

I believe cleanliness was an issue for the scanners.

It *was* a bar code for freight cars. Not only that, but the green-and-white UPC labels you find on food products are direct descendents of ACI. Optical labels work just fine if they only have to make a one-way trip.

They were discontinued as it was impossible to keep them clean enough for the reader not to mis read them even after a cleaning crew was employeed at the cleaning track at the terminals.
