On July of 1958 the Monon wanted to rebuild some of their 1937 AAR boxcars that needed repairs and new paint, the Monon Railroad decided to see what the cars would look like in black with yellow lettering, so where there was white lettering on the original oxide red boxcars, using the same stenciling and stenciling locations, they painted the lettering safety yellow on a black body. These cars were rebuilt in 7 different numbers 9025, 9095, 9107, 9202, 9294, 9412 and 9440 at Lafayette Shops in Indiana, they were rebuilt in 2 different groups. Group one had a 10-41 built date for car numbers 9025, 9095 and 9107 with ASF trucks and Group 2 had a 4-42 built date for car numbers 9202, 9294, 9412 and 9440 with National Malleable B-1 Trucks. These cars will represent both shop date and National B-1 Trucks on the model for a more accurate prototype appearance.
