hmmm..this is confusing!
either there were 2 different cars, or the one car was painted on both sides..but! I have also read that the "map car" was only painted on one side!!
here are 2 distinctly different maps..
one shows Binghamton and doesent have Sayre at all,
and the other is the well-known 97455..
so is the "binghamton side" the opposite side of the 97455's "Sayre side"?
or are they 2 different cars?
or..is the it the same side, same car, but painted twice??
the style of car in the 2 photos looks exactly the same..which seems (to me) like it would likely be 2 sides of the same car..
but then, why are there references to the map being painted only on one side??
there are 3 distinct possibilities here!
1. 2 different cars..one with Sayre, one with Binghamton. each only painted on one side..
2. same car, with 2 different maps on each side.
3. Only one map car, painted only on one side, had Binghamton at one time, and names were later painted-out and changed..(Binghamton changed to Sayre, and other names changed..)
that seems likely, as the 2 maps look identical other than the names..
