Re: The curious case of NP box car colors in the 50's

Donald B. Valentine

    I have another question with regard to paint suppliers on a road the length of the NP. Would the paint bought
at a specific time be used by all shops on the railroad or did different shops use different suppliers in order to 
shop as locally as possible? Different suppliers in different locales that a railroad served could easily cause a
difference in color or shade of a color.

Happy Holidays, Don Valentine
