That thank you was sent prematurely. All that information was helpful. As far as PFE cars are concerned if I could get a handle on when the dual color herald, black and white herald, overland, and modern gothic lettering schemes came into use that would take care of PFE's R40-10 & R40-23.
The dual emblem scheme with color UP medallion was instituted in 1946, and the R-40-23 cars were so delivered. The black and white UP emblem was introduced in 1950, and "gothic" in 1960.
