A truly unique car. The only 100,000 pound capacity box on the Rutland in Oct of 44. Dennis made it in Resin, one of the Storzek kits that I have. He also reproduced it in his Acurail line, kit # 4105.

Looks like somebody forgot to use a matte coat after applying the decals... 😉

The original color? From the as-built appearance in the Teens? I doubt that.
Let’s be careful with general statements. That’s how hobby myths are created, like all PRR freight cars are Tuscan Red.
It takes little extra effort to include a timeframe with a question or an answer. This list is a resource. Include accurate details.
Not all the list members model the years when steam died.
That's true Dennis but it's darn close to the original color that it was repainted with. I used to pass that car several
times each Sat. and Sun while working for the Green Mountain Rwy. and/or Steamtown when serving as either the
Relief Passenger Trainman or the Relief Fireman for the Riverside to Chester turn three times per day. Rich Christie's
suggestion is really of the wall as the cherry red was used only on cabeese and darn few of them at that! I will check
to see.which Accu-Paint color I have used on my Rutland boxcars tomorrow and advise further.
My best, Don Valentine
