Does anyone make 50's era decals or transfers for SLRX cars?
Yes. Clover House Set 9266-04.

Or does Sunshine make a kit?
Yes. Kit #24.28.

One 4000 series car shows up in a photo of
the Milwaukee's "Roller Coaster Track" from early 50's. Considering
that Schlitz and AB were competitors, either the Milwaukee brewery was
catering their business parties with "Brand X", or they were making
good use of a homeward bound empty, even if it DID represent a
competitor.
Not everyone in Milwaukee drank the local beer. A-B shipped beer to Milwaukee in SLRX cars, just as to other parts of the country, so the car in the photo was probably either delivering Budweiser to a Milwaukee distributor or en route home empty after having done so.
