Re: Kellogs cars Re: PC: PC Hopper

Almost all the ones that show up at Kelloggs in Omaha are freight car
oxide/brown with simple KELX reporting marks.  I have been told some of the
cars had Kelloggs characters on them (Tony the Tiger, etc), but people shot
at the cars so much that the cereal was always being contaminated from the
bullets and the water that leaked in through the bullet holes that the
characters were painted out.
