Dave,

The 66122 would have been one of 500 Fe-S built in 1926.  All of the cars would have had A.T.&S.F. reporting marks.  The Fe-R likely had one inch lines above the reporting mark and below the car number, the others likely not unless repainted in 1925-6.  Most likely all were in the 3' herald on the left of the door above the reporting marks, ARA data on the right scheme that came into place in 1925.  Pre 1919 cars had 4' heralds on the right side of the door and MCB data.  In 1919 the 4' herald swapped to the left side and the data was USRA standard stencilling.  The Fe's had AUTOMOBILE and FURNITURE opposite the herald until 1928 when it reduced to AUTOMOBILE.  Santa Fe tended to repaint its cars regularly, so 1910 paint was unlikely.  The Society Auto car book has an Otto Perry photo of an Fe-R still in original paint circa 1935 with the lines and the Auto & Furn as built paint.

The table below shows some features

Subject: [STMFC] Santa Fe cars in 1934?

 
I believe there are Santa Fe historians and fans here.  Could you please help me further identify the following freight cars from a 1934 wheel report?  Photos of said cars as near to ’34 as possible (or notes on the lettering for that time period) would also be appreciated.
