Re: Reading "Speed Lettering" with Diamond Introduction Date

James Brewer


In RDG Color Guide to Freight and Passenger Equipment, by Craig T. Bossler (Morning Sun, 1993) is a photo of RDG 109192, Class XMc. The car stenciling  is the basic roman style, not the "speed lettering." The caption indicates the photo, taken December 28,, 1974, shows the car "still wearing its 11-56 factory paint." The car still clearly shows the ACF builder's stenciling.
