Reading between the lines of the Burlington Route Historical Society's Burlington Bulletin No. 7, on the Burlington's XM-32 boxcars (including the FW&D and C&S cars) and which describes one-stop painting, and which does not mention any change in colors while painting, I would hazard a guess that it was all the same color.

In my isolation I am completing work on Fort Worth and Denver (CB&Q) boxcar in the 8300 series. My question is weee the trucks and under-rated the same color as the car or were they black?
