NH 1937 AAR boxcars

From a post earlier this year. "A total 975 from this series of cars were
renumbered to the 36000-36999 series in 1955. This was not just a simple
renumbering, but involved a sale to the Harris Trust Company, and lease for
refurbishing to Hyman-Michaels, although the actual work was performed at
the New Haven's own Readville Shops. If not already so modified, the cars
were equipped with Apex Tri-Lok steel running boards which replaced the
original wood running boards at this time. Steel floor plates were installed
between bolsters as well."

I have recently purchased Ted's excellent decals for these cars. They come
will also excellent trust plates. I assume that the cars sold and leased
back would have had the original trust plates removed, and possibly new ones
attached. Does anyone know if my assumption is correct. I want to model one
of the script herald cars in good condition so I want to model one of the
early lease back cars. just wondering if I should use the trust plates or
