“Newly Acquired Units retain the same interchange status that existed before the acquisition. For instance, a unit that has free/unrestricted interchange status before the acquisition does not require upgrade to a higher standard to maintain that same interchange status as long as there is no modification, increase in gross rail load, or increase in the service life of the unit.”

The cars, to my knowledge, have horizontal bracing across the top angles from one side to the other to stiffen the car but they do not have diagonal bracing which would normally run from side wall to the floor.
