Re: T&P flat cars


Tony, According to the NEB&W Website, I found the following:

The Tichy 12-pocket flat car kit could be used to model T&P flats, series 5000-5299, 286 cars in '49, built in 1928. As built, they were a box car red, with black underframes and trucks. Later repaintings would have resulted in a solid color. The 5000 series flats were the ONLY flats on the T&P's roster in 1940 and 1950.

I too believe they were black at some time. Sorry if the info is somewhat vague.

I have always thought that T&P flat cars were black, but recently saw a model version in BCR. Which one is correct? or if both are correct, when did they change? Any help appreciated.
