I'm surprised Tony hasn't jumped in on this, but I just checked his book SOUTHERN PACIFIC FREIGHT CARTS, V. 5, HOPPERS, COVERED HOPPERS, TANK CARS. On page 424 there is a 1956 color sample showing "Southern Pacific freight car red".

   Nobody listens, Garth. On paint SCHEMES I do try to help. With paint COLORS, no. Everyone has an opinion, few agree with each other, and it's a waste to typing muscles to chime in.
