B&O Boxcar Paint Info.?


Kathe Robin <kathe@...>
 

I've got an older resin kit of a B&O M15K which I had built and decaled
with the "Links 13 Great States to the Nation" round herald and a repack
date in 1951.

Could someone please tell me when this herald was first used, and over
what span of tears it was common? My railroad is designed to operate in
dual eras of 1926 and 1948, but when I painted and lettered this car my
knowledge level, focus and interest in accurate freight cars was far
less than they are today.

If possible I would like to make this car correct for operation in at
least one of these two time frames.

Thanks in advance,

Max
