Seeing clean cars in the modern day is rare. Seeing long strings of clean cars is almost non-existent. Summer of 2018 saw 2 blocks of new GATX stone hoppers on Train 37T. At 188 cars (not counting what may have been dropped on Mountain Top to the Reading & Northern), the massive westbound received a push from Taylor to Clark’s Summit by the local K-79 switching crew.
