Re: UP series 10300 to 12499


Aley, Jeff A
 

Tony,

 

               It’s not odd when taken in context.

               The models shown are in a post-1960 paint scheme.

               The models do not show OWR&N lettering.  The original poster asked if this was an error for this particular paint scheme.

               Rich’s comment is that he doesn’t believe the OWR&N reporting mark would have been on the car in the post-1960 scheme.  He also was careful to point out that 1960 is “in the future” from the perspective of STMFC.

 

Regards,

 

-Jeff

It’s hard to predict the future but I don’t think the OWR&N lettering will be used in the mid 1960s.

 

     Odd comment. My 1940 ORER, for example, shows OWR&N.
