Dismantle per Rule 90
Posted by BigDaddy on Saturday, March 09, 2019 6:33 PM

Rule 90 has to do with cars legally unfit for interchange service.  Is the tank car message real or knowledgeable graffiti?

Good question. It looks like it's at the end of the train?  Maybe it's on the last journey to the dismantle/scrap site.

That was the Youtube theory, it was only 5 or 6 cars from the engine.

I tend to agree with your assessment.  I couldn't make any date details but given the level of graffiti these days, I would think such a declaration, would be some sort of stencil.

Googling "aar rule 90" it deals with cars over 40 years old having to be retired.
