This is not my area of expertise, but I thought the billboard ban of 1937 targeted privately-owned cars (or RR subsidiaries like PFE) generally, and refrigerator cars rather specifically.  How would it have impacted the ability of the NP (or any railroad) to paint as large and elaborate a herald on the side of a box-car as it desired?  Am I missing something?
