When was this mandate relaxed ?My understanding is it was relaxed in 1948, but I think I
got that date from Burlington Bulletin #28, which gave a
date of July 1, 1938, after which cars with the leasee's
name over 12 inches tall could be rejected from interchange
by the receiving road. BB#28 had at least one photo of a
Heinz Billboard reefer taken in 1938. I've never heard the
JANUARY 1937 date before. I'd sure like to know the whole
story, as it directly affects my 1938 railroad.
I think we've already found that the Hills Bros coffee car,
used between the wharf and the roasting plant, was still
in Billboard paint after 1938.
