Agree completely...
Opinions are interesting, but some normative documentation is needed.

Someone mentioned "artificial aluminum" - If you've ever seen a UPS trailer,
then you know that color. That is NOT the color applied to Southern diesels,
nor to Monon box cars.

If you mean "The Hoosier Line" on the light grey...yes it was gray... band across the top of boxcars, that would be 1952.
Ok I'll bite:
Was the band with "The Hoosier Line" -ALWAYS- light grey..? ...or did some re-paints get done in white?

...and just how light was the 'light' grey?  i.e. one drop of grey in a bottle of white???
In several color photos from the late 1950s... both the band and the lettering seem to have weathered-out to nearly the same shade.
