Ron Christensen's photo of NJI&I #4233 brought back a question re a NJI&I boxcar project I posted a while back -- anyone know why the prototype went with "wrong side" reporting marks on the #100-series?
The Wabash did that a lot. I'm of the opinion they didn't want the open door to obscure their name. That was the stated reason for the ARA recommending the reporting mark and number go to the left of the door, but it appears the Wabash kept them far enough to the right that a fully open door didn't hide anything important.
