Re: Lube markings practices?

The "Journal Pac", or references to "lubricators" also came very late in the history of solid bearings, post 1960 IIRC. Both are references to proprietary journal pads rather than loose waste.

Pre 1960 was just RPKD, date, and station symbol stenciled in contrasting color in the vicinity of the right hand bolster. Roads could paint out the old data however they wanted; some roads tried to match the car color (red or black), some roads just used their standard FC color on everything, some roads used black on everything.
