The stencil information stating when the car was built then appears above the sill to the right of the door as "BLT" with a month and year.
One clarification: The BLT. date stencil was required from the time the car was built, not added at the first reweigh. The NEW station symbol was just a convenient way to denote that the original Lt. Wt. was established by the builder, not the railroad.
