NYC box car decals

Ted Culotta <tculotta@...>

I have finished the NYC 40' steel box car decal set. However, there is one thing I would like to add that I don't have for all of the cars. In a builder's photo I have of NYC 175252 (postwar 10'0" IH AAR box car) it has a stencil below the trust plate that contains the following info: "TRUST NO. 11252" Does anyone know what this Trust No. might be for the following:

IHB 10600-10999, Lot 730-B (Modified 1937 AAR box)
NYC 159000-159999, Lot 734-B (Modified 1937 AAR box)
NYC 161000-161999, Lot 735-B (Modified 1937 AAR box)
NYC 162000-163999, Lot 743-B (Postwar AAR box)
NYC 164000-164999, Lot 759-B (Postwar AAR box)

It doesn't appear that the 1937 AAR cars had this stencil, but if I am wrong, can someone please let me know. Also, the paint data triangles appear to be something that came with the Gothic lettering schemes. Is this correct or did they appear sooner?

Thank you.
