Re: Answer For Mr. Dave Klepper's Question, Is It An R-10 or #1575?

I know about the black GG1s because my uncle had one. As for the number plated on the R-1/9s I noticed that back in the 1950s and 60s when I first became a railfan. It seems that the IND believed in having the number plates match the color of the car as it did with the R-10s. By the time of the R-15s the B of T got away from that by having yellow on black number plates and from the R-16s on up went to white on black. The again went with a more matching color with the white on blue number plates on the R-32s but quickly went back to white on black with the R-38s.
