Re: D&H open tops

John Nehrich of the RPI NEB&W group posted this on Facebook a week or so back.


Just to let people know - from what we can see, all D&H freight cars were painted freight car red until about 1941, when they switched to black for the open-top cars. It seems that cars with the circular herald, either the "Century of Anthracite" or the 1950 "Bridge Line" version, had switched to black.

Subject: [STMFC] D&H open tops


I'm trying to find out what color D&H painted their open top cars in the post WW2 era, specifically hopper cars circa 1949 or so. Web searches yield nothing.  Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Tony Wagner
