Exactly, Mike. I am aware that some of the ex-RGW twin hoppers were convert=
ed to covered hoppers for company sand service and did get the italic Rio G=
rande in black on grey. In fact I pointed out here on the list the car in t=
he photo in Sandrin's "Rio Grande in Color" Volume 3 back when the book was=
released. But the fact remains that the cars never wore the paint & letter=
ing scheme described in Steven=E2=80=99s question to Dave. That scheme is b=
ogus.
