A general note on paint schemes:
When built these cars were typically painted yellow-orange with red ends and roof. Being built soon after the restriction on “billboard” lettering schemes, the early lettering arrangements were typically fairly simple. Most cars carried GARX or URTX reporting marks. Some carried the name of the leasing packing company, while others did not. The later were typically used in per-diem (daily rental) service and could be assigned to any packer that needed a car. The earliest cars had door hardware and ladders painted black, but early in the 1940’s cars started appearing with the hardware and doors painted body color. Also starting in the late 1940’s many of the cars started to appear with the reporting marks of leasing packers and schemes became bolder and more colorful.
