Re: Lettering requirements
The link Earl referenced is my file that was created to illustrate the lettering changes in the 1920s. I scanned pages from ORERs and combined the images into the two page PDF.
Those are the ARA recommended lettering guidelines. There were slight changes to the 1927 guidelines later but I do not have those details. As you compare builder images of cars built in the late 1930s and into the 1940s, the lettering mostly follows the 1927 guidelines.

Speaking of lettering, does anyone have ARA standard lettering drawings?
Some CB&Q L&P drawings reference them instead of CB&Q alpha and numeric drawings.
