Clover House makes lettering for the Genesee

Rochester NY. Russ Clover kindly sent me a scan
of the car.
It appears to be an MDT Bettendorf underframe
40' car of the
type built ca. 1913-1917 (2 equal corner
straps,rebuilt with
6- hinge door instead of 8-hinge door). In the
Clover House
catalogue it is incorrectly referred to as a 36'
car. Color
was listed as yellow, but I bet it was more
likely white,
with red ends and roof.

Larry, did Russ send you a scan of his diagram, or
of a photo of a real car?
