NYC FREIGHT CAR LETTERING PRACTICE


Benjamin Hom
 

Bill Pardie asked:
"Most photos of NYC boxcars in the 1950's show a small triangle with (I believe) paint data on the lower left side of the car.

Is there a date when this practice was initiated?"

December 1950.  More info here (scroll down 2/3 of the way down the page):
