Well, even then, Tony, the majority of the men who noticed the change were the crews in the cars installing the lining.
But weren’t the linings installed at the carbuilder’s shops?

Well, any work on the car lining, they sure noticed. The W corner post made the furring for lining boards much more convenient.
