Re: UP freight car lettering color dates/repaint intervals.

Andy Sperandeo <asperandeo@...>

Hi Denny,

Actually, Terry Metcalfe's book, "Union Pacific Freight Cars, 1936-51," gives the date of the change from white lettering with yellow slogans to all yellow as the beginning of July 1947. He quotes various dates from correspondence and drawings, but they mostly cluster around that time. As far as I can recall, however, he doesn't say anything about the interval at which cars were repainted.

So long,
