I have seen the term privately owned cars in reference to privately owned passenger cars owned by fan associations or individuals (usually w/ $$$). Does privately owned rail car in the sense of this article and freight mean rail cars not owned by the railroad or a leasing company?

It means all railcars not owned by a railroad company.
