Re: D&RGW Boxcar Color

You are right, D&RGW Freight car red is the correct name. I like the color
and it looks correct compared to photos of the old 40’ 12 panel cars.

Poly Scale has D&RGW Brown, but that's a depot trim color, not a boxcar
color. It goes with D&RGW Cream, the primary depot color. They also have a
D&RGW Freight Red, which may be intended for boxcars, stock cars, etc. I
don't have this color, nor have I seen it. I have the D&RGW Brown, and it's
definitely not a freight car color.

Hi Bob,

I can’t help you with Floquil. I use Polyscale D&RGW box car brown.

Ämne: [STMFC] D&RGW Boxcar Color

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
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
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?
