Re: Date photos from freight cars

As has previously been noted, the lower image of GTW 206971 shows a former NYDX 8000-series car, which were first listed as being renumbered to the GTW 206900 series in the October 1942 ORER, with the renumbering having been completed by the July 1955 issue. Given that the car has a complete GTW paint scheme, but certainly doesn't look freshly shopped, and appears to have patched weight data, I'm inclined to think that this photo is 1950s at earliest.

Any clues from the freight cars as to when these photos may have
