"I know that NYC orders of PS-1 box cars circa 1951 were painted with black ends (such as cars 170500–171499). Is that true also for the earlier PS-1 cars they ordered, such as 167000–167999, built in 1948, or were those earlier cars all BCR? How about roofs? I have poked around on the web and not found helpful info. Any advice appreciated."

Data point: NYC 169554, Lot 798-B built 7-50, Lowell MA, c. July 1965 (Leroy Dozier photo)
