Ok, so I'm more tha willing to chalk this up to modeler's fancy, but I feel compelled to run it by the experts before I write it off entirely...
I recently saw an old Varney boxcar lettered for ATSF and in addition to the usual logos and slogans I've seen on such cars, this had a big diagonal "Vote Democratic" to the left of the door.
I find it hard to imagine, but did Santa Fe ever put such a thing on any real cars?
Thanks and I wish everyone a good weekend,
