Clark, Richard

Thanks for the notes! Since I'm modeling June 1944 that second CGW lot
would be one month too new <G>. No lettering info for the 1940 CGW lot eh?
When did CGW change lettering schemes? I suppose it would be a bit out of
the question for a 1940 built car to sport a new scheme in 1944...(thinking
of renumbering and backdating the P2K car).

Well, I can always run the Soo cars! (I need lots of flats and gons for
military loads)

Happy Rails
Bruce
