Not really related to ITCS, but Amtrak is auctioning off, "11 material-handling gondolas stored at the company’s Niles, Mich., maintenance base (once used for trackwork on the Amtrak-owned Michigan Line)..."

Looking on Google Maps, I found exactly 11 MOW gondolas on a siding near the old roundhouse in Niles. Bingo! Does anyone have any "on the ground" photos?

Are these the cars? I took this photo in 2014, when they were stored on an OOS spur track in the Fort Custer area of Battle Creek.
