Stenciling diagrams in kit instructions

Jim King

Re: a couple comments about kit instructions not including stenciling
diagrams, y'all should look at the SR low side steel gon kits available
exclusively from the SRHA. There are 2 very clear, in-service photos of
the prototype car in Roman lettering and even more in the modern Block
font. Stenciling diagrams change over time and are nearly impossible to
find all variations in archives, so I rely on photos. Diagrams are
notoriously wrong too, as the original drawing is usually drawn up
before the cars ever hit the rails and often represent the "what if"
scenario. Another reason to rely on photos.
