What the?? Tony, the letters were orange-yellow and the rest was
with an orange-yellow border - just as Bill Welch describes.
This was done nicely on Proto 2000 B-50-22 cars.
Photos of the style are extremely rare! :-(
The style did not last long, as seen in the photo of T&NO
70287. Black on yellow
was much more visible than yellow over black.

I looked first on the Microscale

available anywhere? I think the "DF" and border are yellow.
Can anyone advise the background, border and letter colors
Background color was an orangish-yellow, as Norm
Buckhart showed. This has been done in bright yellow by some
manufacturers (incorrectly), but was once done right by
Walthers in HO scale. Border and letters are black.
If you have my SP boxcar book, the lettering
drawing for this is on page 354.
