I didn't see them before, but I wonder if it's the same group of cars purchased last year from a location near Meadville. I know they were in Olean at some point last year, but I don't know if they ever left. There were quite a few yellow (UP Armor yellow?) cars in that group.

Those are the same group that I photographed on 2/13/09 in Olean. I wonder why they are still there, Or.. Have they left, and returned again?

At first glance, they looked like former Long Island P72's... But my eyes decieved me. Standard Budd cars... Where they came from, and what they're for, Is beyond me.

The coaches are former UP built by Pullman, they have aluminum skin. The Alaska RR ran some of these several years ago.
