Re: Poultry Cars: Guidance on Colors?

Eric Bergh

Any thoughts on the colors of these poultry cars? I can only  find one prototype (postcard/baseball card) reference showing a "Live Poultry" car with a Red roof, ends and door and black mesh and bottom rail/running gear.

Models run the game from Ambroid's suggestion of White sides and Dark Green roof/ends with a black lower rail, Northeastern with all white and a black bottom rail, a Mainline kit with Red sides/roof/ends and rail and yellow door, a Brass kit that was ALL yellow, and another brass one that had white sides, a black roof, yellow ends and bottom rail and red trucks! 

Could any of these schemes be real??? Lots of old grey and white photos on the web... but sure hard to figure this out :)
