The GTW's Port Huron, MI shops rebuilt these cars from AC&F-1920-built ex-CN 578000-579999 steel frame boxcars between December 1938 and December, 1939. As rebuilt, these cars did not have the Maple Leaf logo. The white Maple Leaf logo was first introduced on CN box cars in 1943, the green and white following in 1945. GTW appears to have used the green/whtie logo post-WWII, never having used the white logo.
Terry Link of TMR Distributing has C-D-S dry transfers available for this car according to his website at--
Here's the actual lettering from this set--
CN Red #11 to paint the car body is available from Scalecoat, ModelFlex, or True Line Trains. You can also use Scalecoat #2 Red Oxide or Modelflex Light Tuscan Oxide Red for a slightly warmer colour to suit indoor lighting and/or weathered paint.
Hope that this helps,
