The 301 was the unit that almost went into the turntable pit at Morris Park. The F-end truck dropped down after the belly tank bottomed on the end of the rail on 19 track. After that it became a parts store.

There were many interesting parts in there usable in other industries.Speaking from experience, sometimes that is the case, sometimes it is not. Storage costs are higher than you would think. Sometimes those components sit around for a long time. Often when buildings are moved or rearranged, the material handling costs just to move parts inventories is pretty high.
