Re: Shell tankcar for my Quincy-model-RR

Fred Jansz

your prototype picture with the emblem says 11-57 on the car.
My picture of the car in the WP train -with SHELL, no emblem- is taken August 1949.
My wild guess is that the emblem was added in the mid 1950's, when all US rr cars got more colorful and more emblems.
Since I model 1949 strictly, there should be no emblem on my Shell car, just the name.
Wish there was a decal set in HO.
