Re: DuPont tank car DUPX 254 - October 1944

Nearly the same size and type of cars (#254 and #3257) - SHPX had a huge number
(many hundreds) of these cars

Note the built date on the prototype (#3257) is 1948. The Atlas car seems like a
reasonable facsimile of the real one, and the model number is valid and evidently so
is the paint & lettering.

Why hasn't ATLAS done their car in this paint scheme? (Or have they?)
They have, but it looks like an imperfect match:
