I've consulted several sources on the banning of older freight car underframes. For the year 1974 I found two conflicting notes:

 

1974 - No underframes over 40 years if built before July 1, 1974.

 

1974 - No underframes over 50 years if built  AFTER  July 1, 1974.

 

So is 40 or 50 years?

 

And was this a ban from interchange initiated by the industry or did the federal government outlaw such older underframes?

 

Thanks.
