Re: Galvanized roofs
I have made the same observation as Brian. All steam era roofs seemed dark. I always attributed this to steam locomotive exhaust soot.
As diesels took over freight cars seemed to stay cleaner and even brighter. No soot. Improvements in paint certainly helped this also.

In the steam era though you didn’t see massive amounts of peeling paint. At least not in the photos I’ve looked at.
