Bill - I have a list of the NP scheme changes at:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
as best I can find the information (mostly from Todd Sullivan's NP Color
Guide) and I would assume the reefer schemes followed the same chronology.
(And if not, I'd be glad to note that in that section.) - John

Subject: [STMFC] Northern Pacific Monad size question
A Will Whittaker photo of NP double sheathed boxcar 12855 photographed inMarch 1954, with a reweigh date of 10-52, shows the car with the larger
Monad or yin/yang symbol and "Main Street of the Northwest" stenciled below
sheathed reefers. Would these reefers, or at least some of them, also had
the larger monad by the early fifties. Would they also have received the
"Main Street of the Northwest" slogan?
wanting to think about how to decal them using the Microscale set, which
includes both sizes but provides no historical information regarding dates
of application of the various schemes.
