While I know that I may get dissenting opinions on this issue I do not know of any "rule" or policy that would require any road to move empty common boxes to their home roads.How about AAR Car Service Rule 3? It says "foreign empty cars SHALL BE . . . delivered empty to home road." (my emphasis) There are further details in the Rule, including the notation that cars covered by SCO 90 should be handled as provided therein.
