There's one "unrefurbed" ConnDOT (ex-PATrain) coach on there, and its possible those two NS business cars further down the page are ex-ConnDOT as well, since I believe a few of those PATrain cars went to NS for a time.

The exterior rust looks mostly surface-oriented except that seam at the far left, which will be a hefty project. But then you'll need a paint job as this one is shot, and there are six missing windows. Who knows what kind of crap is inside - bees, birds, bums... The remaining windows appear to be opaque. While this car appears "solid" in terms of structure (and we can't see the vestibule floors), it needs A LOT OF WORK. Short of a very dedicated volunteer crew, that means big dollars.
