It's quite unusual to see one with B&M markings; all or nearly all I've seen first hand have similarly crude MEC markings. The car in the photos you posted seems never to have lost its original yellow paint; it's just covered over with a lot of crud. As usual, the original color shows most clearly on the outermost surface of the ribs (true also for the big 4750 cu. ft. ribbed three-bay covered hoppers Pullman-Standard built for the D&H in 1974, many of which still have their original bright red paint, covered with a lot of dirt except on the ribs).
