Re: Pennsy hide car


Clark,  The UP stenciled "HIDE LOADING ONLY" plus routing information on their cars, at least when I began taking photos in the 1960's.  I assume all RR's did this in the time of this list, but if you got downwind of one of them you knew what they were or had been carrying.  FHP

I’m about to decal a X29 that I have documentation on carrying hides.
Did the Pennsy use any special stenciling to indicate car usage?

Clark, by the time you’re modeling, all the X29s looked like they were in hide service.
