I have two questions:Schuyler,
According to the ART painting & lettering diagram for this scheme used
during the 1950s, the MP emblem was located nearest the "B" end and the
Wabash flag nearest the "A" end (see RP CYC Volume 2 pages 54-55). This
means that the location of the emblems were reversed on opposite sides
of the car.
In the photo of ART 33320, the right side of the car was stenciled
incorrectly since the Wabash flag is closest to the "B" end. It is
unknown how carefully ART followed their own lettering diagram. Most
photos show the diagram was correctly followed, but 33320 was not. For
the model, the diagram was followed.
