Take what you know from the photos; 2 billboard & 4 standard. The 1/3
amount sounds viable to work from to build the model. I have seen very few
of the billboard scheme in photos; and usually the same number shows up.

My photos taken at the Alpha cement plant at Martins Creek PA on November 11, 1960 show two LNE boxcars (and a multitude of covered hoppers). One has LNE billboard lettering with the wide white stripe at the bottom of the car side, the other does not. Another photo taken a few hours later of the Pennsy's Phillipsburg NJ yard (telephoto from across the Delaware river) shows a cut of cars with five identifiable LNE boxcars. One has the billboard lettering, the other four do not.
