NYSW Box car 501 build and paint


Lester Breuer
 

On Railroad Picture Archieves ther are six photos of New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad Co. steel box car 501 in the “Susie Q” scheme.  Two good photos.  Can someone provide the build date and series of this car?  And, when did this paint scheme begin and end?  And, was the lettering on the dark green yellow or gold? 
Thank You in advance for your time and effort to help.

Ex-Lehigh Valley rebuilt boxcars.  Chuck Davis has done a nice presentation on the prototype and modeling these cars in HO scale - I'll leave it to him to provide details.
