Re: BX 100 - odd car found at Bellingham, WA

I have no real idea regarding what this car is. It seems odd that one would use a concrete car as a reach. There's so many other cars that would work, including retired flat cars, box cars, cur down or not, etc. Since it seems to be associated with the ferry, is there any chance it could have been used as a counterweight when loading or unloading the ferry to keep the ferry relatively level? Pure speculation on my part, FWIW.
