Just barely.  This 9-post version (NWF13A) was built in 2006.  The earliest lot of the 17-post version (NWF13, pictured in Jim's post) dates from 2002-2003.

Will the NSC 53' 9-post NWF13A well cars eventually be released in the red lettered TTX paint scheme?

Edit 11-13-19;  Here is a link to revised (enlarge-able) Artwork in pdf : https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1959/5441/files/11-13-19_Artwork_Side_only_A.pdf?522 - there's a slight glitch in the Font transfer on the very smallest lettering, my computer(adobe PDF) doesn't have matching Font installed, it is correct on the car.

@pmp - Red TTX logo on the 9-post NWF13A ?  I need Photos help !

After skimming through a few hundred NWF13A photos online, I did manage to find one in the new logo:

http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=5153585

This is clearly a patch job, and most likely a very recent one.  I think the entire production run of this class was made in 2006, the year before the new logo came out (IIRC), so most of these cars will probably hang on to the older TTX logo for a while longer I would think.

You had much better luck than I did.

Although the seventeen post variations turned up with red logos, all of the photos (i.e., including some that were taken in 2019) of the nine post cars that I came across bore the previous black and white logo.

Apparently got my prototypes mixed up.

Guess TTX never needed to a repaint or re-letter their batch of NWF13A cars.

The patched car that you found would make a nice addition to the models that JTC already plans on releasing.

Thanks for sharing your find.

Did I miss the announcement of an additional well car? I didn't find it with a quick search of this forum.
