Re: Metal running boards on NYC
NYC 72000 series would be Lot 850-B, 800 cars built in 1954 through
1955. I only have one confirmed BLT date of 6-54. These were fifty-

I have no information on running boards, but with a 1954 build date,
I would be surprised if they were not galvanized and I would think
they would therefore not have been painted.
