White sides (including fishbelly), ends, door. Black lettering
Large "G" herald on left, 2 row "Boston &Maine" on right. Both with orange stripes under.
(date) Pan Am [varies - I need to categorize]
Blue [different ones?], some with black on bottom of side. Small or Large "Pan Am" "Globe" heralds
Multiple styles of "Pan Am" or "Pan Am Railways" above reporting marks
Some have American flags in left most panel
does the dark blue used on some REALLY fade THAT much? (to an almost greenish blue?)
