Re: BAR 7000-series reefers

Attached are two views of BAR 7765 taken on different visits to the Conway Scenic Railway. No guarantees the shots reflect either as-built paint or a later in-service version. Make of them what you will.

Does anyone on the list have a color photo of a BAR 7000-series 40' steel refrigerator car in the as-built orange scheme from 1951-53 (two batches)? I am curious what color the ends and sills were painted. I checked the message archives and only see discussion of the red/white/blue scheme.  Henderson mentions a solid orange scheme on Page 23 of Classic Freight Cars Vol 3 as being the original, but this image suggests that they had dark ends, roofs, and sills:  BAR 7015 - Bangor Daily News March 1953

Thank you,
