Charlie - you might want to take a look at the TruColor Paint
website. They have a boxcar red for NC&Stl. http://trucolorpaint.com/index.php?p=1_22_Color-Chart

Moon must be in the right phase, or I tired of working on layout
scenery. Am building three resin cars at the moment (Wabash
automobile boxcar by Speedwitch, RI 40' automobile boxcar by Rocket
Express and the Westerfield Fowler 36' boxcar).

Have some painting questions on the modernized 36' NC&StL car with
1940's lettering.
What color did the NC&StL paint these cars or what model color is
recommended.
Was the roof painted the same as the sides and ends or did it get
black car cement?
Was the underframe black cement or the same color as the carbody?

Thanks for any recommendations and help.....
