Re: IC Reefer paint

Jeffrey White

In the 1930s they had silver roofs.� I have an official IC photo of steel reefer 50011 that has a silver roof.� The car is stenciled� NEW 10-37. The green stripe on the bottom looks to be a lighter green then the stripe on top.� It's a black and white photo so I can't tell the shade of the sides, yellow or orange.�

From photos --

1950's -- dark green roof and ends and sill stripe. Black underbody and
sill tabs and trucks.

1960's (your photo) -- adopted MDT/NRC style of painting -- orange sides,
mineral red ends and roof, black underbody and trucks.

Hello All,� In looking at a photo of refrigerator car, IC 50302, on Railroad Picture Archives,

I am wondering what was the paint color of the ends and roofs.� In this photo it appears it could have been black or orange?�� Which color was it?�� Thank you for your time and effort to help.�� Lester Breuer
