Re: US Army and Navy boxcars during WW II + ammunition placards

In WWII, the placard was "INFLAMMABLE" not "FLAMMABLE".

I am preparing a clinic for the February 18th SFRH&MS Mini-Meet at the
San Bernardino Depot regarding the Chemical Warfare Service's San
Bernardino Bomb Plant and the Rialto Back-Up Ammunition Storage Point
east of San Bernardino, CA during World War II.

Can anyone point me to photos of:

1. US Army or US Navy boxcars that would have been in use during World
War II (1941-1945), or

2. The appropriate placards (Explosive or Flammable) that would have
been used on boxcars loaded with ammunition during World War II.

Thank you and . . . Happy New Year!
