About the Reading & Northern 'Placard Repaints' paint scheme:

The Reading & Northern acquired many former D&RGW Bethlehem 3483 Hoppers from Union Pacific in the 2000s. These cars have received various patches initially however many have now been fully repainted with a classy black diamond placard. These cars can be seen often on the RBMN as well as on the Norfolk Southern. Every now and then these will find their way back home and have been seen on the rails here in Utah.
