     Thank you Drew and Bruce. I feel a bit better knowing the herald was around in 1948. It is easier to change car numbers and built 
dates on commonly found cars that it is to change the herald used.

Cordially, Don Valentine

Actually enclosed bi-level auto racks. These cars lacked side doors.  Sylvan once offered resin models of these early CN cars in HO scale.  CN later lengthened the design to 75 ft, and these cars were acquired by Auto-Train Corporation, later going to Amtrak.

Re: Reading decals - was Printing White Decals - 'Fonts'

Don,


The anthracite herald appeared at least as early as 1942. I have a photo of READING HTs 67300, new, 9/42, in this scheme. For a color photo of HTf 89252 see page 38 of the Reading Color Guide showing it with a 1944 reweigh that also appears to be a new repaint. I also have a color photo of Hth 75096 in this scheme with a reweigh of STC 5-48, for a car built in 1917, so no, it was not just applied to newly built cars.

      Reading hoppers with this paint have given me sme grief. Can anyone advise me with any certainty as to
what year the red patch herald began t be used. Did it only come through on new cars such as the offset hoppers
in 1952, that Kadee has offered, and later or might it have been earlier. Also, was it used when repainting the
hoppers and, if so, beginning when. My cut-off date is December 1948 but I like the look of these cars and will
have a few around IF they can be rostered without bending the time line.

Thanks in advance,, Don Valentine

Don,
   I can't give you an exact date off the top of my head but the "America's Largest..." herald was introduced in the early 1950s on an order of offset side, two bay hoppers. Cars rebuilt received it when painted. The herald was phased out as a money saving move in the early 1960s. The guys over at the Reading Modeler website have much information on the Reading. John Hall included info on the herald in his two bay hopper set which, since I was looking for one, I could not locate in my stash.

Rapido NP DS Boxcars

The car fleet ended up with many duplicate numbers, so the weekend hobby time has been spent upgrading the cars and changing their numbers.  Kadee scale couplers became and the replacements and InterMountain semi scale wheel sets were substituted and brushed painted as the renumbering was underway.  Solvaset was able to soften the numbers after the second drop was allowed to evaporate.  Some easy rubbing removed the last number of the six models completed.  The NPRA decal set for Rapido Boxcars was such a perfect match that the Rapido cars could have been decaled.  Of course, the earliest of the boxcars required the removal and replacement of the  very small car number used in the NP style of car capacity on the right side in addition to the large number on the left side.   The assembled Sunshine kits for this series compares very well with the Rapidos.

I'll have a new kit or two for the Collinsville meet.
Fenton and I have worked together and come up with ends, doors and lower side sills to make the SAL AF-5.
I used a Branchline AAR kit. Here it is still needing some work.
