I can’t see enough to see what specific placard this might
be, but I used to have a collection of hazardous material placards most of
which were diamond-shaped (meant to be displayed like that). I got many
from tank cars, but not all: “Inflammable”, etc.
I have seen these on box cars, but have no idea if this was
a “standard”, “accepted” use. Someone stapled them onto one or more tack
Richard Hendrickson and I had a long conversation about
these. He and Tony, IIRC, worked on assembling a package for MicroScale
to do them as decals. It is a very nice set. Presto,

Anyone know what the diamond shaped placard on the end of
the car at far left is?
The switch leading to the track the locomotive is on with
its points inside the crossover switch is an interesting detail as well. Would
be fun to model.
