Guys;

 

I agree, this was repainted at P712 in 3-53 in MS3 P&L.  I see no evidence of a reweigh.

 

Repaints into MS were not confined to Altoona.

 

I am curious about the truck.  Whose is that?

Do not concur.  Car clearly has large Circle Keystone vice the Shadow Keystone of MS3.  This car is in MS2.
