General Electric Rail Services (NADX) “Ex-AA Patch 2005+” gives us a final look at the Ex-Ann Arbor orange paint in the 2000s. Now owned by GE Railcar leasing, this model is an example of ex-AA cars with NADX reporting marks. By this time, these cars begin to see other uses outside of auto parts, with examples including peat moss loading out of Canada. The Tangent model shows the continuing effects of time, as the orange patches have faded to a light orange and the car sides include some brown patching for the new NADX reporting marks. Underneath that storybook of paint patches is a 1978 Ann Arbor car, with the correct 5-grab body and body-mounted brake gear. The NADX car also features replacement-style Morton crossover platforms.
