Mike; this just got beat up on another list, and has been discussed on
other lists. Our best information so far, and we eagerly accept better
information, is that the Bowser H21 hopper in red lettered for VGN is a
pure guess. We do not have good information as to whether or not they were
repainted during the 18(?)months that VGN leased them, and, probably
because it was during the war, no pictures have surfaced in spite of
multiple requests on multiple lists. If Atlas has some better information
we'd love to know what it is and where they got it.
