oxide red color - CH-70-1

gray color - CH-70-2

Eventually UP adopted gray paint for most covered hoppers (airslides got aluminum paint)

Intermountain did both closed side and open side versions of the ACF 1958 cuft covered hopper in UP paint schemes - but strictly divided: -the open side car is box car red and the closed side car is grey:

Does that mean that there simply was neither any grey open side car nor any bcr closed side car?

Many thanks

Johannes
