Mike and List,

I think that Meadville used the Erie Lackawanna lettering pattern that they
were using on the repainting of the cabooses into the new G-M-Y scheme
started in 1974. See attached photo where I superimposed one on the other.
As for the diamond, I haven't looked into that. This is a real nice find -
just shows the creatativeness of the shop forces.
