Re: Paint schemes timlines


The PRR shadow Keystone was first applied to class X48 (PS-1) boxcars in February, 1954. It began being applied to all freight cars in August 1954. The plain keystone was adopted in late 1961 and applied to all cars beginning in 1962. Keep in mind that there are 4 different shadow keystone schemes because of changes in the font used in the reporting marks and numerals.

For the complete list of PRR P/L schemes see

Hi Guys!
Could someone please give me a rough timeline for the following paint schemes.
Pennsy's Keystone, SP's Gothic, and Western Maryland's Speed lettering. Thanks!
