Re: Frisco Single Sheathed Boxcar # 150147

The DM&IR placed a steel plate with the monogram painted on it on the sides of some cars starting in the 1950's . In some cases they did the same for the reporting marks and number.

There is a picture of the 3/4s of the side of this car
in Hundman
Publishing’s Slow Trains Down South Volume II at page
131.  The car has a
sheet metal plate attached over the reporting marks for the
Frisco logo. 
The car has wood doors and I would guess steel sides.  How
widespread was
the addition of the plate and logo?  The picture is dated
1962.
For those who love transition power, there is a picture
of a home built
diesel body on top of a shay running gear at page 101!
