Re: GTW rebuild herald

The background on the tilted wafer herald for the
Grand Trunk Western was green, and not red. At least I
never saw a red one on freight equipment.

Subject: GTW rebuild herald

I have a photo of GTW 460305, a steel rebuild of one
of their double
sheathed cars. The logo is a tilted square containing
the underlined
text 'GRAND TRUNK WESTERN'. The logo appears to have
a different color
background than the car. I have heard that this
background was red.
Can anyone confirm? This is not a 'Maple Leaf' logo.

Thank you.
