Michael Bishop asked:
"On Nov. 15, 1949 the Lackawanna launched the streamlined passenger
train named after its mascot, The Phoebe Snow. What would the 1942
cars have been painted for?"

While the Phoebe Snow slogan would not appear on rolling stock until
1942, the Lackawanna's Phoebe Snow advertising campaign dates back to
the beginning of the 20th century. Here are some peirod
advertisements (the webpage isn't great, but it does have 6 of the
Phoebe Snow ads in one place):
