By "just reporting marks" I meant no herald or any other large CGW ID;
ICC required info only. Ted

Ted - Not necessarily. There are a lot of non-standard schemes I've
missed. A lot. Sometimes a scheme is found on just one car, and until
picture of that particular car is found, nobody knows about it.
MOW cars normally have no dimensional data, use of an "X" or someway to

let the trainmen know the car was not to be used for revenue service.
(I'm not sure when you say "just reporting marks" does that mean no
other lettering whatsoever, or just reporting marks and dimensional
data.) - John

Shawn - 1951. See our paint scheme section
for more detailed information.

I have an early 80's photo of a CGW 50 boxcar with nothing but
reporting marks. I don't see that "paint scheme" at the above
I'm guessing this car is therefore MoW?
