Re: x43b roof color


The PRR painting instructions call for the roof to be two coats of asphaltum which would be a grayish black.  The question is did the builders follow these directions and the answer to that is unknown.

As delivered, did these PRR box cars have a red, or black roof?  The branchline kit contains a black running board and a roof that is black in the center and red around the edges.  I'd be grateful for help in getting the original roof (and running board) color correct.  Many thanks, Ed Shoben
