PC: Re: Odd Question

According to the PC Color Guide, Beech Grove Shops painted some boxcars with
black logos and roadnames for a few weeks early in 1968. Reporting marks and
numbers were white.

Athearn was well known for picking the oddball schemes and duplicating them,
but this scheme DID exist.
