Grand Trunk Western and Norfolk and Western (formerly Nickel Plate) each owned a 50% interest in the line. NW used it to reach Detroit and GTW used it to reach Toledo. It's position gave it a vital role in the movement of auto parts. In 1981, GTW bought NW's share and merged the line into its system. These cars joined the GTW fleet, some remaining in this paint scheme for close to two decades.
