Did the B&A have bay window cabs (which were then new) painted box car red in the late 50's lettered for the road? Were they lettered NYCS or B&A and what road numbers did they carry?

It should be noted that in between the NYC 20498-20592 numbering and the Penn Central, they would have been NYC 21516, 21721, 21734, 21793 and 21795. That would have been mid-1960's time frame.
B&A had five steel cabs, #1300 - 1304 built in 1949 as Lot 782 by Dispatch Shops. These cabs went on to NYC as 20498 - 20502; then N-7 Class on PC as 21516,21721,21734,21793, & 21795.
