Re: N&W Paint Question

For clarification, I confused the CGW mini-kit build with the YMW B-5 build, both of which are on the workbench. Ed Hawkins answered both questions off line, indirectly through George Toman’s CGW clinic presentation and directly for the N&W B-5. For the CGW, freight car red sides and ends with black roof, underbody and trucks. For the B-5, it depends upon paint date. Original paint was freight car red on all surfaces with black trucks, 1951-52 repaints could be freight car red sides and ends, black roof, underbody, and trucks, and 1953-54 could be freight car red sides with black ends, roof, underbody, and trucks. Ed Hawkins provided this information based upon his research at IRM Pullman Library archives.
