That is the most steel box cars I have seen in your videos or pictures.  I also note they are rusting badly.  I guess the rairoad doesn't care as long as they can take a load and roll.

Hi, yes the box cars are not common nowadays. MRS preffer to use All Door car, like the ones we see in the end of train O772 in the video above. Most of MRS and VLI box cars were made in Romania in the 1970's. 

14 - 15) Freight car plates recovered from scrap yards.
