Erie Lackawanna 40foot Boxcar: This is typical of what 40 foot
boxcars looked like in the 70's and 80's. Keep
in mind that 40 foot boxcars were old. The 50 and 60 foot boxcars tended to be much newer. White painted
letters on old boxcars tended to streak like these are shown. Also, when reinspections are done new stencils
(near the big "XF") are painted on, leaving a very noticeable dark square and bright white paint.
