I don't know what "I'm"stands for but the color of GN flat car and the 40' SS box car trucks (and the entire cars for that matter) around 1950 was mineral red.

GN Experts,

I'm finishing two HO scale GN models in November (Chad's flat car and the Sunshine SS box car) and would like to know please what color to paint the trucks. Were they black or Mineral?
