….The question is, what about box cars? Would Big 4 cars have been renumbered and repainted by 1949?Not all of them, Mike. The 8/47 ORER showed more than 4.600 box cars still under CCC&StL reporting marks, and 53 were still listed as Big Four cars in 10/50. NYC was apparently in no great hurry to repaint them and apply NYC reporting marks.
