Re: Viking roof color question

When these cars were built the standard was the roofs and ends would be black. The roofwalk may have been unpainted or black, not totally sure. The builders photo clearly show the black ends and I believe the roof is also back when I look at the tif version I have. Can’t send it as it is a 26 MB file and cannot .The lighting of the photo might infer the roof is unpainted galvanized but that’s not correct. I have a car to change the roof on myself. I bought the roof from Stan R, not sure if that was your roof Tom.
In the 60’s some of these cars ended up on the D&TS.
