Ok, So then you are modeling 1953, Lettering should have the straight leg R
in Nickel Plate Road. Like Ray said "By the early 1950s, the cars were a
jumbled mess. Some were all brown, some had black roofs and ends, and some
even had bare galvanized roofs with brown roof ribs. The NKP was generally
pretty standard about how they painted their cars, but these things got a
little bit of everything. It's best to pick a specific car from a specific
year, and model that individual car!"
