The car models the Soo Line #44500-45098 series (even numbers only). Decals are K4.
The weathering job looks great, very believable. Too bad K4 doesn't include lettering diagrams; the Soo applied the "$" herald with the sides vertical; it was supposed to be a perspective view of a hanging banner, and was originally rendered complete with the string it was hung with. Aside from that, these cars were built in 1949 and '50, and these particular cars never had black backgrounds in the herald, but did have black ends.
