Re: GN Freight Car Painting, c. 1950

Staffan,

     What color would the bodies, ends and roof have been of the GN 9000 series cars at that time that had survived?  When would they have been rebuilt and painted?  Also, what would be the color scheme for the 1937 steel roof and end with wooden side group before and after having plywood sides installed.

Thanks,

Bob McCarthy

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?

Thanks,
