Ken, here is another repaint that appears to have received black
paint on the ends or it is
the original paint, and they just left it alone. I've seen many
partial repaints of freight cars!

Wisconsin Central cars repainted with this lettering in 1952.
Surprisingly, it seems to have been repainted with black
ends, which were eliminated during new car production in 1951.
The weigh date information is “AX 2 52.” AX is the shop
designation for Stevens Point, WI.
Ken, out of curiosity
do you know the dates when the lettering changed on the cars?
Yes, Matt. The kit includes
the as-built Pullman-Standard lettering for Soo Line
(and DSS&A for the other kit).
