Photo: PRR Boxcar 54409 "Buy War Bonds"

A 1942 photo from the Temple University Libraries:

https://digital.library.temple.edu/digital/collection/p15037coll3/id/49797/rec/1204

This photo can be enlarged quite a bit.

Note the four quadrant switch crew chalk marking near the grab iron. This is a typical pattern with a "+" sign with a letter or number code for the location, shift, carman and "ok" in the four quadrants.
