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.
>It was common to so letter a car on the Rock Island when new roofs were installed. I have not seen pictures of another carrier use similar lettering. There is a decal for it included in the Rocket Express 50 foot single sheathed boxcar kit.
