Re: SLSF box car paint scheme

This was an LCL service scheme, although I don't know if these
cars were in restricted service. Sunshine kit #4.2 represented
these cars.

On pages 888 & 889 of RY AGE for May 25, 1940 is a black & white
photograph of four SLSF all-steel box cars. All four of these cars
have dark roofs, ends, doors and side sills with light colored
sides. FFF inside a circle is on the side to the right of the door
on each car. The only legible car number is 129801.

Does anyone know if this is just another builder's photo with non-
standard paint or did the Frisco have such a paint scheme in regular
service? Would these cars have been in some captive service?
