Re: Photo: Unloading Plumbing Fixtures
Bob and Tony,
I doubt the display portion of hazardous materials placarding regulations have changed all that much over the years. You could get away with covering a hazardous placard over, but if no covering is available, "when the freight comes off the placard comes off" unless it is a tank car or a car with containers that have residue in them.
As we all know, railroads began lowering placard (tack) boards in the mid-1950's so you didn't need to be at a dock or have a ladder to install the placards.

Good eye! I think removing the placard without a ladder(or being at a loading dock)would be tough! Placard boards in photos often seem to have kept their paint more than I saw in real life. Bill S
