12489RE: [HOn3] RPO & BAGGAGE CAR ENDS
- Dec 1, 2000Mark,
If I remember, Bob Richardson said that the ends were painted black when
the cars rebuilt in 1937.But I mite be wrong.
Looking thru a 6-30-19 ICC D&RG Pass. Car Acount #54 report, I didn't see
any notes about,nor was there any notes in the main Account #54 book.
Not much help on this one.

Thanks for the advice - my model is one of those without the 35 pound rail.
But the black painted ends is new - was it done throughout the life of the
cars or was there a specific period?
