You might check out the message from Staffan Ehnbom on 10-22-2012 at 5:25AM which was a response to my inquiry regarding the color scheme for a GN truss rod box car as it would appear in 1954 painted with the side view of the goat.

I plan to put a photo of the car in the photo section later today.
