Looking thru the B&M car disposal records (coming, eventually, to the web site), one thing I noticed...
Up thru 1930, cars were noted "sold for scrap"
Starting in 1931, cars were noted "Retired" (or "Retired a/c age")
Anyone know if there was an accounting or ICC reporting or ? change at that point in time?
Or is this just a "B&M Thing"
Note other cars were noted "Destroyed" (I assume that means "wrecked"), so it's not that.
