Usually when you come across a long line of old railroad equipment, there's a few possibilities for why it's there:

1) It's old and about to be sent to the scrap yard

2) It's being stored by some museum group pending cash to restore it

3) It's uhmm... just sitting there...

This lineup of mismatched locomotives, passenger cars and former Amtrak baggage cars fall into the latter grouping. They're all owned by a railroad that doesn't seem to have any immediate plans for most of this stuff. It's the equivalent of a buck tooth po'bucker's lawn - where there's various cars and appliances scattered about waiting to be fixed or put to use, one of these days.
