Re: GN Freight Car Painting, c. 1950


Hi Stephan,

I don't knows what all that jibberish is either---something added by the Chinese as they review all our emails, of course.

Nonetheless I got my flat car painted today and thanks to you the colors are right. I'll get you a photo sometime soon. Thanks again and I hope you're doing great.

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?
