I'm finally getting to the Shake-n-Take 2011 project, which was a 40' AC&F build reefer owned by NADX and leased to Hormel. However, that's too late for my time period. These cars were originally built in 1940 for North Western Refrigerator Line, series 6800-6899. As noted in RP Cyc vol. 4, page 66, unlike the previous grey sides for NWX, these cars had "yellow-orange" sides. Might any of you have a suggestion for a paint match?
