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


 

CMWX (Chateau Martin) had several steel Pfaudler cars, albeit painted in
their magenta paint scheme, for hauling wine. See
http://coastdaylight.com/chatmart/cmwx_roster_1.html for examples.
(including one by me). Use of these cars by Chateau Martin, however was
after 1960.

Thanks!

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.

Fellas,

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.
