I think this was asked before, but what data is usually printed on the AB air-tank? I can't find a photo on the net anywhere.

Paul, brakes were serviced more or less annually, like truck journal repacking, and the railroad, location, and date were stenciled on the reservoir or reservoir mounting.

      Most lettering drawings for railroads will say something like "stenciling to conform to instructions shown in Interchange Rule No. 60." Maybe Guy WIlber or someone can quote that rule for us.
