I also thought that the use of an SPS car for this shipment (away from its home district) was interesting.

Car Service Rules allowed cars located within an AAR district to be backhauled empty in the opposite direction from the owner, providing a car order had been made at a location "within" the district for reloading in the direction of owner. This also applied if the car could be loaded within an AAR district to an unloading location that also had a car order for a load to be made in the direction of home. It was not a violation while it was being used in District 11 which contained the loading and destination points. However, this would have been considered a violation had it been loaded to lower Michigan, Illinois or Missouri. It also would have been considered a violation had the car been loaded to Green Bay, Sturgeon Bay if a loaded order for the empty was not available
