About the Chicago & North Western '1966 - As-Delivered' paint scheme:
In 1966 the Chicago & North Western received 165 Bethlehem 3483 Hoppers numbering 63000-63164. These featured a large yellow placard designating these cars for UNIT TRAIN SERVICE ONLY and were initially assigned to shuttle coal from Peoria to Waukegan, IL. In the early 1970s, it appears the cars were no longer in this service only and could be seen wondering about in the midwest. In the early 1980s many of these cars began to be repainted into various paint schemes.
