Hi Andy, Schuyler, and List Members,

5/27 could be a date, could also mean car 5 of 27 or some other similar car count.

Eric noted the year as 1919, so the 5/27 must be May 27th. Extraordinarily accurate dating, thanks to some yard worker.

Look for the large "asterisk" chalk mark with a 5/27 mark on the 1st car to the right. I assume that would be a date.

Eric, the fact that they are "still have their 'new' stenciling" shouldn't
be surprising, as these photos are from the late teens or early 20s. Thanks
for the ID on the WSB reporting marks.
