Would anyone know what color the ACL painted their 40’ flatcars in the mid 1940’s?

Thanks in advance

Throughout the 1940s-1950s, ACL’s flat cars & other open-type cars were typically black with white stencils. Some cars received black paint as the final finish coat while others received black car cement as the final coat.
