There are PRR cars in paint so terrible, the road forced to fix and reweigh
the car couldn't read the road name, and had to stencil the reporting marks
and car number from the underframe, on a new paint patch.
I did a model of an X29B repatched and stenciled by another road, using their
own lettering. It is definitely not close to PRR lettering!
Funny as #$%%
Until you mentioned this car having been repainted off the PRR, I'd haveTony--
allowed that this was within the realm of possibility.
I just don't think that the Pennsy would lend out their stencils to an
off-line road or shop. So given a paint life of 15-25 years, this car would
have been re-painted at least once--off-line?? I suppose some industrious car
shop painter could have either used their road's stencils or made ersatz
Pennsy stencils when it came time to letter the car? I find this a little
hard to believe...
