Exactly my point, Tim.

I took anther look at my two photos of the 8-48 built (40' Rock Island) PS-1s, and while I can't see the lettering on that corner, I now know what it says!

I think what stimulated Arved's question was that the WHOLE CAR is new.
So the fact that RI applied a stencil especially for the roof seems a little
bit odd. Kadee by the way faithfully included that stencil on their model.
