Re: Munshaw Canada slide Canadian Pacific CPR dock yard scene
That's a little too absolutist. In fact, the practice of treating with lime was not as widespread in the US as it was in Canada, where it was required, as has been noted earlier in this thread, and most US stock cars did not show this off white band. On the Canadian stock cars in question the off-white was painted on the car. While it may, or may not, have been designed to "hide" the effects of lime treatment, it certainly wasn't caused by it. I will also remind you that typically, the inside of the car was the concern, not the outside, and so profligate use of lime so that it coated the exterior bottom half of the car would have been grossly wasteful.
