Re: Branchline 40' steel CMO (C&NW) boxcar 39092

Ed, thanks much. I have been putting off relettering these four cars--sometimes laziness pays off! Best wishes,

Steve and group,
Forgive me for jumping in so late on this topic, but I purchased a
four-pack of the Branchline CMO 39000's, and am concerned about the
lettering above the reporting marks. Every photo of a CMO steel box
car that I have seen shows only the letters "CStPM&O" above the
reporting marks, but the kits all carry the same lettering as appears
on CNW box cars (full "Chicago and North Western"). Guidance please.

The AC&F builder's photo from lot 2770 of CMO 37662, built 8-45, had
CStPM&O stencils above the reporting marks. The builder's photo from
lot 3256 of CMO 39092, built 10-48 had CHICAGO AND NORTH WESTERN
stencils above the reporting marks. In case this matters, the
1945-built CMO cars had Duryea underframes while the 1948-built CMO
cars had AAR-type underframes. Hope this helps.
