Generally you can trust the lettering on the Proto 2000 models but you're taking a big chance with Intermountain models! It helps to have an appropriate Equipment Register (ORER) for your era so you can check up on the owners and car numbers.Tim is right about what you can trust. But the ORER doesn't always solve problems--some bogus paint schemes have used authentic initials and car numbers, but applied them to entirely wrong bodies. Are such models closer to "correct" than if the car numbers are imaginary? Your call.
