    I think that leaves them with the double deck units. What has me confused is this, it cost money; I'm sure quite a bit, to get those here, now they are selling them because they can't use them here because of the windows and the brakes. So if you can't use them, why spend the money to bring them here. Who wants to buy something they can't use here?

    I'm guessing they thought they could use them here. I presume the cars met Canadian standards, so it wouldn't be too unreasonable to think they would be acceptable here as well.

    We have other cars besides the ones in Tacoma. What makes you think there is a problem with the windows and brakes? The cars passed their air test without a problem, the windows required a waiver, so what.

    The cars are excess at this time, why keep them and pay track storage on them in a high volumn area (high trackage fee).

    Wish people who are not involved and have no direct knowledge would keep their noses out of other peoples business.
