Re: [PHOTO] Re: NYCTA M/Mís overalls.

What stands out about the M/Mís uniforms on the NYCTS is that blue shirts and long ties were required rather than the traditional bandanas often worn by steam RR engineers. That particular Lo-V was one of the later ones that had MUDC as delivered instead of retrofitted like the older ones. I had heard at some point that those higher numbered Lo-Vs had the numbers painted on the panel behind the door rather than on separate enameled number plates which the high numbered Lo-Vs displayed. The way I heard it the Worldís fair Steinways were delivered with the enameled number plates and enameled number plates were also ordered for the rest of the high numbered Lo-Vs but not installed till the late 1930s.
