Re: LNE Boxcars

I have a copy of Freight Car Journal Monograph #18, The Lehigh and New England Railroad Freight Car Diagram Book, by Eric Neubauer. On page 5 he states "...Some steel cars were repainted black around 1950 with large 'LNE' initials and a white stripe at the bottom of the car side. Cars rebuilt with reinforced side sills were also black, but lacked the stripe. By 1956, cars were again being painted entirely brown (box car red) without large initials. The brown paint scheme was used on the PS-1's, but with black ends."
Hope this helps.
