Re: Question CP Scheme on New Accurail Release

Patrick Harris asked:
"Accurail has released the 3600-series 40' double-door steel box car in the CP script scheme. That 25K marking to the left of the double doors seems too modern for a car with a 1941 shop date, but I'll let someone tell me if that is an erroneous observation on my part."

I replied:
"At any rate, the 1941 reweigh date is anachronistic for a car with the script 'Canadian Pacific' scheme, which was introduced (at the earliest) in 1959."
 
...and upon closer examination, the REWEIGH date on the model is 11-62.  So yes, it's an erroneous observation all around.
