All this talk got me to wondering about the Proto 2000 8K Type 21
car that is lettered for Hercules Powder. I'll assume it's
accurate, but for what timeframe is that P/L scheme good for?

Dean, the photo on which the model was based shows HPCX 510 with 6-51
brake service stenciling and 11-53 journal repacking stenciling. I'm
not certain when Hercules adopted that P/L scheme, but it's shown in
the old Walthers PLD-2 book of post-WW-II (1946-1955) lettering
diagrams.
