Texas & Pacific DS box car...

Jack Burgess


I am just starting Sunshine Models' Kit #52.13 for the Texas & Pacific
50000 series double-sheathed box car. The Prototype Data Sheet states that
these cars were painted boxcar red with a "brown tone". Is Floquil Southern
Freight Car Brown an acceptable color? Is there a better choice/mix. Also,
was the underframe painted the same color? And...where the trucks painted
the same color? I modeling circa 1939 if that makes a difference.
