Re: PC: P1K X72A boxcar lettering

This is true..  I've seen shots of LV cars with "return to agent C&O RR
Detroit MI" on them...   I figure either the pictures Life Like worked from
showed a car in a specific service on some ICC mandated ancient interchange
route, or else they had the "EL RR" address art already done up and used it
because it looked close to the right info.
