Re: Data on AB air reservoir

As I recall, back in the steam era the only requirement was to stencil the initial of the servicing road, station symbol where the work was done, and the date in 1" letters on either the brake reservoir or cylinder. There was no reason to include the initials COTS; the data was on the brake equipment, and everybody knew that's what it pertained to. The use of the COTS initials is a sixties era thing, where the date was moved to the consolidated stencil on the car side.

Since the required information is the same as a repack stencil, just trim the RPKD letters off that decal and use it.
