Re: F&C NYC Despatch Covered Hopper
???toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Steve, there are builder photos, pre-1955, of grey NYC covered hoppers.
Also, the 1966 photo I mentioned is a pre-gothic lettering grey painted
Despatch "Enterprise" type covered hopper. If you have photos of red or
black NYC covered hoppers, how about some dates and car numbers?
I don't follow your train of thought -- you say there are no photos of
cars in grey before 1955, and then you mention Jerry's set for grey cars
in pre-1955 lettering. Your point?
So we have zero photos of a NYC covered hopper post-war before the 1955 advent of Gothic lettering in gray.
