Re: D&RGW Boxcar Color

Just thought I'd point out this photo of the D&RGW "triple door" (as
it was described) box, in a very appealing paint scheme...

As part of my campaign to better balance my boxcar roster, I bought
Sunshine's 12-panel 10'4" D&RGW boxcar kit, and the recent discussions re the
D&RGW brake system motivated me to build it.

I'm at a dead end re color. Sunshine's prototype date sheet mentions
"boxcar brown," and the kit instructions are silent re a recommended model paint
color. The RPC freight car color table offers no help on this one.

Not being a D&RGW guy -- any recommendations re a Floquil color that will
get me into the proper color ballpark?
