Not bad for an old guy, at least the info was in Mainline Modeler at some time, right wrong or indifferent.

Can't be the late 1970s, as Mainline Modeler wasn't in print until 1980.  January and March 1980 issues (reprinted in the Phoenix soft cover Best of Mainline Modeler series), and a significant source of misinformation on these cars, specifically, a conjectural lettering diagram (some with little basis in reality) of the roads who were allocated these cars.  Ertl used this for their line of cars, which resulted in the worst feature of these models.  Thanks, Hundman.
