Car number 399:

Car number 375:

The cars should have had the bi-lingual herold. Yes; they would have been repaints (as they would have had the yellow door for paper service originally); and yes; sometimes the shop crews were sloppy and missed it but that wasn't the norm; nor was it the official CN policy. After 1961, it was bi-linugal.

Also, as perviously noted by someone, 5 of the 6 road numbers chosen are wrong for the model made, notice the sill on these - it's lower than the model made. Cars with road numbers below 410399 were a 1964 series, the 401400 and above came from a 1966 series that had the flat sill. So in reality only one car is correct.

Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!
