Hi:

Were any of the Great Northern double sheathed 40-ft boxcars (45000 -
52999) painted in the "tilted roadname" scheme, or whatever it was
called?

Thanks,
KL

Subject to correction, AFAIK those wood cars were never painted in the
slant lettering. Some, post WWII, got the new herald with the
word "Railway" but it was the later post war steel cars that got the
slanted lettering, including the so-called "Circus Train" cars in
several bright colors.
