Re: GPEX Pfaudler Steel Milk Car: proper paint color?

Kenneth Montero

I noticed that one photo shows that this particular car was last leased to Fleishmann Distilleries Corporation. Were they were used for fluids other than milk? Any ideas what was shipped other than milk? It might expand the modeler's use of these cars besides movement of milk.

I am not sure what the correct paint color is for these cars. Any advice appreciated!

The one we have at IRM, GPEX 1021, is Pullman Green with yellow lettering. This link should take you to photos:

Surprisingly, that's still the original paint. I remember the car when it arrived in 1974 or thereabouts, and the gloss was gone from the paint then. It was a rather light, yellowish version of Pullman Green.
