Either they didn't ask, or they didn't listen to the answer. Another 
part of the problem is that the car is lettered with the 1955-1962 Dulux 
yellow and black roof, although there is reason to doubt that any 12-1 
cars were so lettered. They committed the same error with the 
heavyweight coach.
At least IHC used the right color of lettering.
