The photo of 170494 shown in Bulletin #35 is also shown more clearly (still B&W) in the Burlington Route H. S. Data Sheet on 70 ton hoppers. The text states that they were equipped with roller bearing journals in standard friction bearing journal boxes with lids. The lettering was identical to that applied to the rest of the HT-10's except it was black lettering instead of white, with additional lettering below the herald of "TIMKEN - ROLLER - BEARINGS", "GREASE - LUBRICATION" and "AS PER INSTRUCTIONS"
When they required repainting (after at least 10 years service), they received the standard paint scheme of the day but without the special lettering as roller bearings were common by then.
I can send you a scan off List if that would assist.
