Re: Westerfield USRA SS Ann Arbor boxcar

Lettering practices at the time the AA single sheath cars were built were based on Wabash drawings, so yes.  That said there were some minor variations in placement of the lettering, the 14-inch "ANN ARBOR" roadname in particular, between the different builder's cars.  Note that the post-WW2 steel boxcars were built with essentially the paint same scheme and the Ann Arbor "pennant" herald did not appear until after 1950.
