Per Diem linage question

purely personal request here...I picked up a few of those new Athearn Per Diem boxcars cars, specifically the Prineville RR , Union Railroad and  few other Oregon cars and was wondering if there is anyway to find out what railroads ended up with them?  I'd like to patch and weather them beyond their state when in service with those railroads. 

Thanks for any info you can share.

Cheers

Joe

I'm not sure the Prineville cars had a second life - some talk on Trainorders about them being in storage and then scrapped.

Here's a beautiful shot from '07 though:

Many went into lease fleets with leased shortline reporting marks (yes, there are benefits of leasing the rights to use a railroad's reporting marks) such as IATR, NOKL, EEC etc.
