My earlier email response seems to have gotten lost in the ether so I'll try again. No mistype. I used to call the Bangor and Aroostook RR the BAR until some folks in Maine corrected me and said it was the B&A. Now I suppose they could have been pulling my New York leg. But I Chose to believe them.  

Earl is right about the 50 ft. cars. Unfortunately, they were a small part of the fleet in the 1950's

Brian must have mistyped: this thread is about BAR cars, and the B&A had nothing like this.

But to the point, yes, the BAR used a similar RWB scheme on 50' XM's. Some number of their '32 AAR cars did also receive it.
