There is a Jim Sands photo that clearly shows it's not an optical illusion
and Scotchlite letters makes sense. And another photo about 10 years after
they were built (1957 at GN St Cloud) shows the reporting mark repainted in
bright white.

Hi Ed,

I seem to recall that the reporting marks on that series of SP&S boxcars were applied in Scotchlite reflective material, which is why they accumulated dirt and dust and/or lost their white look more quickly than the painted lettering.
