first use of large NYC logo

D. Scott Chatfield

Was the first use of the large NYC logo/herald on the green & black scheme in 1959, or were some red-brown boxcars painted that way first? I know the "Century" style reporting marks were adopted in 1955, but the photos I've seen of red-brown cars still have the small logos. Somewhere in the back of my mind I thought I remember seeing a red-brown double-door boxcar with the 15-foot wide logo. I only have the NYC Color Guide Volume Two.
