Placement of end lettering for LNE hoppers


Mark Heiden
 

Hello everyone,

I have a question regarding the end lettering on Lehigh & New England
twin-bay offset side hoppers, series 13251-13350. These cars were
built in 1939 by Bethlehem Steel Company.

I'm lettering a car using CDS dry transfer set 713, and while the
lettering diagram shows a broadside view, it does not show the ends.
Does anyone know how the reporting marks and car numbers were arranged
on the ends? Was there any other lettering on the ends? I'm modeling
a car still in its original paint, so information on the as-delivered
lettering is what I'm seeking.

Thanks,
Mark Heiden
