Re: color MDT reefers in the '40s

The Delano photos and another photo I grabbed from Ebay (with good color rendering)
show yellowish cars but it could be fading. All later photos (1950s+) are definitely
a mild orange, slightly darker than NP reefers for example but more subdued than PFE.

Aren't there several Jack Delano color photos taken in Chicago during WWII that show several lemon yellow sided, wooden MDT reefers?

     Orange did fade toward yellow. A photo of an orange car in service for some time cannot be definitive on this color.
