Of greater interest to me is the Rock Island aluminum express boxcar behind the wheel car.  It has been painted green, but looks quite a lot like it did in 1946.

The wheels are probably a little too uniformly rusty, but new wheels can get rusty if they have set around for a while.  If they are new, then the gunk is out.  If they are older sets, perhaps reused by the wreck crew, they could be gunky. Jerry Michels
