Thanks, Dan, that caboose appears to have a rounded corner on the carbody itself, which makes it different that the model I have to paint. I appreciate your sending along this image.
Geez, this morning I didn’t know one D&RGW narrow gauge caboose from another and now I’m picking out spotting features. Is this a great list to learn from, or not!?

Can’t help with the exact color issue, but we have D&RGW shorty caboose no.0526 here at the Huckleberry Railroad in Flint, MI. Sadly for your question, the cabose has been repainted several times over its lifetime, and was recenty totally restored (frame-up) here at HRR just a few years ago. It’s now about 80% new wood, though we reused what we could if it remained structurally sound.
