This is a one time thread so after it is answered, DO NOT post your own guess the car.

Now aside from Julio, Subwayguy, and BwayBuffer, who here knows what kind of car this is and what is was used for before it was chopped to peices?

A "reach" car. some R17-R22s are in use as such now. They were just rebuilt, so I would expect them to remain in use as such.

 

While they were in bad shape at the end, the I still feel as if the destruction of these cars was a big loss. They could have been used as an example of C types or another example of Q types.

The Qs haven't been used in revenue service since October 4, 1969. They were 66 then and would be 106 today.

 

Yep, they lived a nice long life and a few are still with us today. The is the Q in the TA museum and the "BU" cars were once aesthetically "Q" cars and are still mechanically "Q"s. The "Q" cars that I posted photos of were in the Scrap Yard and when I returned the following week, all that was left were the trucks.
