I don’t know that this photo tells us what color the roof is. The official date where roofs began to be painted mineral brown was 1951, but some continued to be repainted black for another year or two.

Well, this one has a mineral red roof on it and a 1948 re-weigh. I guess I have been painting them wrong all this time which is disappointing.  I thought they still had black roofs then.  Certainly make painting then easier I suppose.
