It would be prototypically correct for 1963. I can change the reweigh and repack accordingly, but I do not have a photo to make sure that a car with the particular road number also received that paint scheme. From 1964, it was all "Century Green" with smaller oval logo.
I can also change the repaint date in the triangle - although I don't think that many people can read it.

I have been asked for more boxcars after the "test run". I do not have many kits left and I plan to use the rest on NYC and/or P&LE cars in century green.
I know that most people have enough of 40' AAR 1937 boxcars. Therefore, I would like to know your wishes before I order more kits from Lok-n-roll. Limited runs made out of kits can never compete with the price of the cars made by GoldCoast, of course.
The price in EU would be EUR 55 (with VAT), outside of EU EUR 44 (without VAT).
Shipment cost EUR 6.80 for 1 or 2 cars, EUR 13.60 for 3 or more cars.
I can make something like 20 cars before other projects are ready, so for the RTR version, 4-5 cars variants could be made.

Another possibility would be to make decals. Those would cost EUR 5 per car incl. VAT or EUR 4 without VAT. Some simple lettering schemes would be cheaper than that.

Here is a list of what can be done, they can be with different road numbers than before if you want. Those with TT-west artwork are with permission.
Central of Georgia http://www.ttnut.com/resources/image/8481
Boston & Maine http://www.ttnut.com/resources/image/8482
Boston & Main - The Minute Man http://www.ttnut.com/resources/image/8525
Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis - Dixieland slogan http://www.ttnut.com/resources/image/8527
Chicago & Eastern Illinois - War bonds slogan
Florida East Coast - red or blue Speedway slogan
Lackawanna (D.L.& W.) - Phoebe Snow slogan
West India Fruit & Steamship - this is most likely an "alternative history" car, although very popular among model train manufacturers http://www.ttnut.com/resources/image/10160
Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México (N de M) - RTR as a stand-in. The scheme is correct for cars made by Magor. If you want a correct model, you can modify the sides and use decals.
Chesapeake & Ohio - For Progress (decals can be made also for C&O cars as delivered, without any slogan)
Southern Railroad
New York Central (century green)
Pittsburg & Lake Erie (century green)
Soo Line

(I'll add some pictures)

40' AAR 1937 in NYC paint scheme, made out of my last kits. I'll see if I can get new supplies from Lok-n-roll.

MTB comes with PKP version of their Skoda electric - EU05/EP05.
+ ST43 diesel.
Could it be something for voyttek?

Yes, You are right.
I am so excited.
EP 05 is already on the way together with some material to work on the next module for the next show in the spring.

I have also ordered ST 43, so I hope to get it before the spring show.

In California... we call these "Popsicles" (after the colored frozen ice)...
Perhaps they copied from PKP ???

The TE70-4S inherited the full-width windows from the Espee-spec GE U25s that they were based on. Some other lines used a split window.

The U25B frame, trucks and cab shell were re-used, body and almost everything inside was new.
