Paint Failure on Outside Metal Roofs

Walter M. Clark


There is ample evidence that paint didn't stick too well to house car
roofs circa 1920 - 1930 (SP Freight Cars, Vol. 4 Box Cars, page 223,
photo of B-50-15 and discussion in Pacific Fruit Express, 1st edition,
page 96), but I haven't been able to find anything about the early
20th century (Harriman through USRA) and 1937 AAR house car roofs.
Did these also have the same problem?
