    CSXT leases a bunch of these cars for Tropicana Juice movements... They are former FGE cars, repainted them to CSXT.. CSXT_199074_El_Centro_CA_Steve_Vincent_1993_06_04_70701.jpg

    Yeah but CSXT sucked the color out of them. not even sure if any of the Tropicana cars are still painted or are they now CSXT Blue.

    I hope people like the new cars. Still have more coming to be released.

    Michelle, the Tropicana boxcars are still alive and well. See them in CSX trains going through all the time. Maybe with some artwork (graffiti) added, but still the same.

    Good to see some cars are still around. All I know is CSXT is painting everything blue..................... I miss those 1970 when everything was more colorful, but times change. Just hate seeing all the generic paint schemes more and more.

    Sadly I find myself becoming more of a NS, CR fan girl over Chessie System cause CSXT is trying to destroy it's own past.

    Some of the old orange-painted Tropicana cars, like the ones that came with the Conrail SD60I set, now belong to Progressive Rail in Minnesota.
