The GM&O Mathers car is wrong for your date of 1947. The Mathers cars on the
GM&O roster came from the Alton, which was absorbed in 1949. You need the
P2K Alton cars, which are decorated correct.
The C&IM car is completely screwed up. The cars are decorated with yellow
sides and black roofs and ends. The cars should correctly be painted with
orange sides and mineral red roof and ends. The lettering itself is correct.
I'm using them as-is for now, but will eventually try to "fix" the cars, by
repainting the black and attempting to "orange up" the sides with a wash and
lots of weathering.
Modeling the Peoria, IL, area circa 1949.
