Thank you I model 1950-3 so that sounds good to me.

I found this note posted by Robert Burns back in 2007:

"1954 was the year SR "officially" changed the color of hoppers, flats, gondolas, etc. from black to "freight car brown/red", but it took several years to get everything painted, so black cars ran up into the 60's.


1959 was the year the lettering changed from Roman to the Gothic/Block, but again, it didn’t happen overnight."

Cannot vouch for its accuracy.
