Re: B&O C-16 Question

FWIW I can confirm a C-16 was an express car for passenger service and they were coach olive green until early 1947 and then repaints were BandO blue (no gold stripe like other express car classes). 125 M-53 boxcars car were converted to this service in the early 40s. And by 1949 only 25 C-16 were on the roster and only five were blue. Car numbers after 1949 were 1875 to 1899. By 1959, all were converted back to M-53 boxcars.
