ART 1936 reefers in 1950s paint?

Its my understanding the new ART steel car will be out soon. Inter-Mountain
will be doing different cars such as Wilson Car Line but not the ART cars.
MPHS and The Amarillo Railroad Museum will be doing the ART cars 3 different
paint schemes over time.

The Intermountain PFE R-40-10 is very close to some ART cars of 1936, but has it been offered in, or can you get lettering for, the early 1950s scheme with the MP and Wabash logos?

Charlie Duckworth did an article on modeling one in I believe RPC #2
and used Oddballs decals. The car, of course, represents those cars
built before ART went on a building/buying spree on the horizontal
seam cars.

In that article (based on the R-40-23 kit, since at the time it was the closest match available in styrene) he used Champ decals for the as-built "ART shield only" scheme. He indicated "the larger Wabash flag" was the problem with doing the 1950s scheme.
Maybe another article appeared later in a different publication?

Could Oddballs set #546 (for a WOOD reefer, 1950) do the trick, used in combination with another set? Or is the Wabash flag the wrong size?

Scott,

Clover House (Russ Clover) makes excellent dry transfer sets for several ART reefers, including the MP-WAB versions. They are available in several scales, including HO, N, and O. See www.cloverhouse.com for information on how to get a catalog.

Russ is a GREAT source for steam era lettering sets.

Set 549's description is somewhat misleading. It represents the scheme
adopted sometime after mid '48 and as applied to both wood and steel
cars. The dates mentioned are the built dates - not that of the paint
scheme. All of the steel cars inc the horizontal seam ones came with
the ART shield only scheme best represented by Champ's Blue Ribbon set.

Aha! I didn't even look at the diagram for #549 because of the 1936/1939 dates. (Even though I had noticed some other sets were dated too early for their schemes.)
