I thank you Tony, and my later 50's group will not
have roof numbers either.

Again thanks,

A question for the PFE guys,
I have seen the odd picture showing the car
stencilled on the roof. Admittedly these were
photos from the 1920's and 30's. I'm in the
of applying the decals to my latest project, a PFE
My question, was this practise of putting the car
number on the roof continued into the 1950's? If
what size and where were they located?
Sorry the slow reply, Jim, as I was out of
town until tonight.
The PFE Chief Mechanical Officer I interviewed said
that the roof
numbers were NEVER standard, and were NEVER applied
to anywhere near
all the fleet. I know from photos that size and
location differed in
different cases. If you want the roof numbers, I
think there were
possibly still a few in the 1950s, but my own model
fleet for 1953 does
not have any and won't have any. Of course, YMMV.
