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.
