CGW PS-0 car kit

Fred Jansz

Hi all,
I'm building F&C kit 6351, the welded 'PS-0' car w. 6 panel Superior door and 9 rib end panels, either UP or CGW. I chose for the Chicago Great Western lettering, since I own a few UP cars already. In 'my year' 1950 there were 49 of these CGW cars, numbered 90000-90049.
Searched the web, but can't find any prototype info. The kit's instructions mention box car red paint. I wonder if that is for body only, trucks and underframe being black?
Also: which type of end brake gear and trucks were used for this class?

Your help is appreciated.

best regards, Fred Jansz
