Update: I noticed another "trash car" in my picture of the Frankfort, IN, coaling tower.

This is for anyone that had to switch these damn things!! For Freight Car Friday, I give you trash containers on spine cars on the RF&P at Doswell, VA. They smell horrible, and, after raining, and you are switching these, don't, under any circumstances, stand anywhere near them when you are coupling them!! It doesn't matter how easy you try, they shaking throws that pooled up water in the tarps out, and all over the place, YUCK!!

I caught this Waste Management car going westbound at the Yount St. crossing a few days ago. UP has been interchanging them for a month or so with TP&W. I wonder what they are carrying?
David Jordan John Menges Kevan Davis These come out of the Lehigh Hanson cement plant at Clymers, Indiana. Containers are believed to contain kiln dust. Destination unknown but I'd guess either Oklahoma or Texas.
Waste Management hauls enough trash from Brooklyn to Queens that they bought a new Tier 4 locomotive with a slug. Their Varick Avenue Yard has a lot of trash cars.
