Destroyed or disposed of dedicated equipment was especially costly, while shovel-out and/or steam-cleaning less so.  Loss of things like cross-bars and belts, were very expensive, since you had to go back to Evans, for example, for replacements.


But many of the GA-E cars were leased to the railroads. Did not the lessor own that loader equipment?
