Re: Broadway Limited 6.000 gallon tank cars

Hooker and PennSalt changed their schemes over the years. The orange and black billboard scheme for Hooker started in late ‘50s and went to mid ‘60s, original as-built in the 30s and 40s was black.  In between there was a dark red and black.  There are photos showing dozens of the Hooker orange and black tanks together in Tacoma and at Niagara Falls.

PennSalt had the brown originally, with the yellow and blue roughly the same time period as Hookers orange and black. More difficult to find photos of those. Not sure how many were painted that way but at least a few.
