I like it, but what about generic open top cars?
I would simply put an underscore for 'oppen topped' RR cars under the letters/data in the upper left corner of the counter and an overscore for 'close topped' ones:That IS the problem with white coloring.
With National center color, RR Cars could follow the normal AFV rules for Open/Closed Tops.
Not all of them would have none. Some German armored trains consisted of a number of armored individual cars which were all self driven by a diesel engine and could move independently.Good point. As railroad cars, they would not have an independent movement allowance.
I can imagine situations in which trains would be concealed - for example if Air Support is involved. So IMHO it does make sense to include Concealment counters for Trains if the counter designs of the RR cars make that necessary.If trains don't need to be concealed (which it seems you don't think they do), then there is no functional point to it.
This is equivalent to the way this same problem was solved for black Waffen SS vehicles, with the vehicle type symbol under the MPs printed in blue (OT) or grey (CT). No biggie I think as long as it's clear.I would simply put an underscore for 'oppen topped' RR cars under the letters/data in the upper left corner of the counter and an overscore for 'close topped' ones:

Easy to remember, too:
Either the stuff/lettering is On it = OT or the stuff/lettering is Covered by it = CT. The symbology would speak for itself.
